The task of the division is the research on the topic of exhaust gas emissions from vehicles. The activities cover measurements on chassis dynamometers, engine test beds and injection test beds as well as the development and application of software tools for the simulation of energy consumption and emissions of vehicles with conventional and alternative propulsion systems.
The software developed within the division covers engineering tools for manufacturers up to emission inventories for cities and countries for environmental monitoring issues.
