Analytic Process to Develop a Local Truck Driving Cycle 821256

Driving cycles have been used in Federal Test Procedures to establish fuel economy and emissions characteristics for automobiles. Reasonable driving cycles for trucks and buses have been more difficult to establish because of the great variety of uses which these vehicles experience.
