Project Description

Laboratory analysis - field test for gravimetric sampling and analysis The goal of this contract is to obtain representative and random sampling of emissions and vehicle fleet as the vehicles are used in real-world operation. Modern technologies have allowed for Portable Emissions Measurement Systems (PEMS) to be installed on a vehicle adding minimal weight ald load. These systems also have the capability to monitor the activity of the vehicle (such as speed and location), which is an important factor in understanding how and where the emissions are formed. Portable Activity Monitoring Systems (PAMS) can also be deployed to measure only activity.
