Alghadi, Mostafa, Ball, Andrew, Mishra, Rakesh and Asim, Taimoor (2015) Drive Cycle Optimisation for Pollution Reduction. In: 2nd International Conference on Petroleum and Petrochemical Engineering, 10-11 January 2015, Dubai (UAE). (Unpublished)

Green house gas emissions have abraded environmental quality for human existence. Automobile exhaust is a significant contributor globally to green house gases, among other contributors. This research investigates how vehicle fuel consumption can be tabulated from laboratory tests and road tests. The laboratory tests are used to establish mathematical relationships to predict fuel consumption as a function of such drive-cycle parameters as vehicle speed, acceleration and throttle position. Then, these relationships are applied to calculate fuel consumption during real-life road tests. In the future, the drive-cycle parameters contributing to vehicle fuel consumption could be optimized to lower automobile exhaust’s impact on environmental degradation.
