Real-World and Real-time Exhaust Emissions and Fuel Consumption of a Test Vehicle Supported by Cooperative Systems for Intelligent Road Safety

Within the framework of the EU COOPERS project a passenger car with gasoline engine was investigated under real-world conditions to validate the benefits of the COOPERS system regarding fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. This paper presents the methodology carried out and the results of the investigation. In order to analyze the vehicle performance due to fuel consumption and exhaust emissions experimental tests on a motorway route were executed. The test vehicle was equipped with a newly self-developed ultra-compact on-board measurement system. Additionally Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking was implemented to link the received geographic information of the road test route, a section of the A12 Motorway in Tyrol, Austria, with the measured exhaust mass emission data. The data were analyzed and the two test modes − COOPERS switched on and off − systematically compared.
