STATISTICAL ANALYSIS AND GENERATION OF DRIVING CYCLES FROM THE ST. LOUIS HEAVY-DUTY CHASE-CAR DATA

This report presents a summary and documentation of the work performed under EPA Contract NO. 68-03-2429 entitled "Statistical Analysis and Generation of Driving Cycles from the St. Louis Heavy-Duty Chase-Car Data". Program Objectives were successfully met with a statistical analysis of the driving patterns of 70 trucks and 5 buses, the development of driving cycles representative of various categories of operational data, and a comparison of the St. Louis and CAPE-21 data bases to help validate the assumption that the CAPE-21 cities, New York City and Los Angeles, represent extremes in heavy-duty vehicle speed patterns.
