Zero-Impact Tailpipe Emissions - Test Cycles

Published: 1 July 2022| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/z4kdp3k6dp.1


The provided data are an integral part of the manuscript with the title: "How to define and achieve Zero-Impact Emissions in road transport?". They are the result of a thorough analysis to identify the most appropriate driving cycles to test Zero-Impact Tailpipe Emissions compliance of on-road vehicles depending on the vehicle category they belong (light-duty or heavy-duty vehicle category). By providing these test cycles to the academic and industrial community the authors aim to further support the Zero-Impact Tailpipe Emissions powertrain development and experimental testing in the future.


Steps to reproduce

The test cycles are provided in .csv format. Each file consists of the vehicle speed profile, the road gradient, the driving time and the driving distance. The selected driving profiles derived from both publicly available and internal libraries. The cycles can be directly used either for vehicle simulation or for vehicle experimental testing.
