11:00 AM From the laboratory to the real world: It is time to evolve

From the laboratory to the real world: It is time to evolve
• Vision of the future for in-use emissions that include online regulations, air chemistry feedback models, and inventory assessments
• Discussion of the shortcoming of our regulation methods and the VW scandal in 2016, the U.S. heavy duty scandal in 2000, and the recent Cummins Inc. issue
• Regulators are looking for ways to move from the laboratory to the real world. European regulations are moving in a direction with Real Driving Emissions (RDE) • New approach is called continuous monitoring with vehicle self-reporting: OSAR (Onboard Sensing Analysis and Reporting), at the California Air Resources Board (CARB), they are calling it REAL (Real Emissions Assessment Logging)
• To have each vehicle (millions) sensing and reporting their emissions to a cloud based system. From this the goal is to characterize the vehicles as a fleet where those emissions are being emitted and when to implement policy to controls spatially, regionally, and temporarily. • Start evolving our regulatory process into a modern connected dynamic world to protect health and the environment
