Improving Air Quality Through Vehicle Technology Innovation
Thursday 14th June 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
The Clean and Smart City Conference, hosted by Cenex, considers the role of ultra-low emission vehicle technology developments in improving air quality in cities together with the emerging landscape of Connected Autonomous Vehicles. The conference is delivered in the following three sessions:-
Session 1 – Project ACCRA (Autonomous and Connected vehicles for CleaneR Air)
This session presents the results of project ACCRA, an Innovate UK funded project developing a system to capture real-time air quality readings that trigger hybrid electric engines to switch automatically to zero-emission running. The geo-fencing technology has enabled a decision-making engine capable of taking inputs from a range of city data, such as live air quality information and real-time traffic conditions, to activate on-demand zero-emissions running instructions.
