Research area


We develop software tools for the simulation of fuel consumption and energy consumption as well as exhaust gas emissions from motor vehicles. Our tools and models are used throughout Europe. A close relationship between developers and users leads to practical and easy to handle simulation tools.

VECTO is the official tool of the European Commission to simulate the fuel consumption and CO2-emissions of heavy duty vehicles.

PHEM is a detailed model for 1Hz simulation of single vehicles and vehicle fleets

Simulation of motor vehicles, trains and ships on transport networks

Simplified model compared to PHEM, tailor-made for linking with micro-scale traffic models
