Cutting CO2 emissions in road traffic? eCoMove shows how it is done!

Road transport is one of the biggest sources of air pollution. Therefore, this is an important area with considerable leverage for CO2reduction and climate protection.

That is the reason why the EU Commission promotes projects which tackle this problem. The EU-funded eCoMove project consists of 31 project partners investigating the question of how to reduce travel times in cities and protect the climate by intelligently combining the latest vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure technologies.


Presentation of results at final event in Aix-La-Chapelle

The eCoMove research partners will present their results at the final event which takes place in Aachen (Aix-La-Chapelle) on 20 and 21 November. Demonstrations in vehicles and other devices as well as presentations provide plenty of information for drivers and traffic managers on how to improve journey time and protect the environment.
