EDAR remote sensing allows for the accurate detection of real-world emissions from thousands of vehicles daily.

EDAR accurately detects the temperature of the exhaust to ensure that the vehicle tested is "warmed-up," therefore eliminating any false-positive high emitters.

EDAR is a proven technology that can differentiate between and detect emissions across all classes and vehicle types.

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) confirmed that EDAR has the ability to do the following:

  • Discriminate emissions standards for all Euro classes (Euro 0/Euro 6) and fuel types (diesel, gasoline, LPG, with and without DPF). 

  • Detect tampered or poorly performing vehicles (e.g., due to aging effects or defeat devices) with high accuracy.

FACING THE FACTS

Vehicle emissions remain far above the regulated emissions standards as car manufacturers are struggling to close the gap between lab testing and real-world conditions.

Today, even years after the Volkswagen scandal, and despite improvements to testing and enforcement, vehicle emissions from multiple manufacturers frequently exceed emissions standards in real-world driving conditions.  (Source)

Meeting emissions standards is even more important now, as research shows many correlations between air-pollution exposure and health issues, including the following:
 

  • Mental-health disorders such as schizophrenia and depression (Source)

  • Eye disease (Source)

  • Heart disease 

  • Stroke 

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) 

  • Lung cancer

  • Acute respiratory Infections in children (Source)

  • Asthma attacks (Source)
