On-road emissions testing

Intertek’s Milton Keynes Transportation Technologies laboratory has developed a portable vehicle exhaust emissions testing system that enables manufacturers to report real-world driving emissions. The Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS) is vehicle mounted, thereby allowing manufacturers to report real-world driving emissions on the public roads, rather than in a laboratory, on a wide variety of cars and light commercial vehicles. As part of the testing service, the company is also developing driver aids and route management tools to ensure it delivers a high percentage of valid tests to customers. Intertek’s Milton Keynes European Centre of Excellence for high-end automotive powertrain testing and engineering services has also invested in low-carbon vehicle, high-performance electric machine and hybrid testing cells at its automotive test laboratory to enable its customers to reach their goals on air quality emissions and CO2 reduction in future vehicles.
