Dr Mark Peckham, Director, Cambustion Ltd will speak about Real world Driving Emissions testing.

Modern emissions legislation contains requirements for the testing of Real world Driving Emissions (RDE) to be incorporated in to the certification of new vehicles. In this talk, Dr Peckham of Cambustion discusses some results taken with fast response emissions analysers around Cambridge and London. The results show the effects of traffic conditions, speed bumps and other transient driving features on the emissions of various vehicles and accurately locates the position of the pollution “hot spots”. The engineering causes of the emissions is also discussed.

Mark Peckham is a director at Cambustion (a spin-off company from Cambridge University Engineering Dept in 1987). He graduated from Edinburgh University in 1990 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and went on to complete his PhD at Emmanuel College Cambridge in 1993. After a brief time at Ricardo in Shoreham, he returned to Cambridge to work for Cambustion where he has helped develop new emissions-related instrumentation and provides technical support to his customers worldwide. He has a particular interest in in-cylinder sampling and tonight’s talk involves his current area of interest: Real world Driving Emissions.
