Résumé / Abstract
The main objective of the European cost1 action 319 (estimation of pollutant emissions from transport) is to coordinate research activities in the field of transport-related pollution. As a part of this project, a survey is currently conducted, concerning the European and non-European researches dealing with statistics on vehicles uses and operating conditions. The aim is to collect the information and statistic data available, to study the methods and equipment used, and also the methods applied to characterize operating conditions and to build up test cycles. A questionnaire in two parts was sent to a number of European and non European experts. The first part addressed experiments dealing with vehicle use: vehicle types, tools used (survey, on-board measurements, etc...), information collected, and methodology. The second part concerned the use of the data collected: driving cycles or model development, and the method used for analysing the data.
