Mobile app for RDE testing

The RDE CoDriver is a mobile app that helps the driver to navigate through the complex Real Driving Emission (RDE) test requirements to ensure the successful completion of the test. These requirements include specific boundaries regarding trip composition, driving dynamics, altitude and temperature conditions.

Throughout an RDE test, the RDE CoDriver app calculates and visualizes real-time information based on the data from a wirelessly connected PEMS (Portable Emissions Measurement System), such as the OBS-ONE. The app immediately informs the driver in case of a failure, reducing wasted test time and resources to a minimum.

Manufacturing Company: HORIBA, Ltd.
  • Supports European Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1151
  • Connects wirelessly to PEMS and visualizes all relevant information
  • Supports moving-average-window (EMROAD) and power-binning (CLEAR) method
  • Supports upload of test results to central data storage for immediate processing
     

Benefits 

  • The RDE CoDriver takes the complexity out of RDE testing and helps to increase the number of successful tests significantly
  • The RDE CoDriver substantially reduces the cost for the testing of a vehicle and increases the availability of the car for other tests, hence decreasing development time and cost
  • The RDE CoDriver allows for training the driver without the need for an actual PEMS unit reducing cost and time for resources

 

Applications 

  • The implications of RDE Testing
  • RDE test with on-board system
  • RDE test on the chassis dynamometer
