Annual Investigation of Nationwide Mobility Trends: “The Pulse of The Nation” on the 3 Revolutions

  • Principal Investigator Giovanni Circella, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
The study will shed light on the evolving impacts of new mobility options on various components of travel behavior and vehicle ownership, how these solutions expand travel options and the circumstances under which travelers increase travel multimodality and may reduce their reliance on the use of private vehicles.

Dataset: Identifying Roadway Physical Characteristics that Contribute to Emissions Differences between Hybrid and Conventional Vehicles

Research Product Type
A second-by-second data set obtained from monitoring vehicle emissions over a series of 75 test runs from 2 test vehicles over an 18-month period during real-world on-road operations was used to assess emissions differences between two propulsion systems and attribute these differences to physical roadway/infrastructure characteristics.
