The planned Real Driving Emissions legislation requires new powertrain concepts meeting real road driving dynamics. Conventional methods and tools reach their limits in the development of these technologies. The Institute of Internal Combustion Engines and Powertrain Systems of TU Darmstadt (VKM) and AVL are jointly researching new solutions for the further development of existing development environments.

1 Challenges of RDE

By introducing the Real Driving Emissions (RDE) type approval the European Union responds to the discrepancy between homologation and real driving measurements of pollutant emissions [1], [2]. One reason for the differences is the homologation procedure itself. Up to now, specially defined homologation vehicles are tested on a chassis dynamometer in synthetic emission cycles (for example NEDC). This load spectrum is not representative for real-world driving conditions. Therefore, emissions reduction measures mainly focused on the engine map area of the legally...
