The transportation research focuses on quantifying energy use and associated emissions from vehicle fleets. The work investigates influence of vehicle size, technology, and fuel from the bottom-up. Recently, we have developed robust methodologies for extracting engine maps from vehicles based on data collected on-the-go. The use of real-world engine maps and driving cycles allows better base line estimates of energy use and associated emissions, both currently and under various technology and policy interventions.
