IAQM Webinar: Driver behaviour changes - how telematics can inform the changing 'new normal' in vehicle emissions in the UK

Since the COVID-19 pandemic emerged large societal shifts have altered who travels where, when and why. The reduction in mobility decreased vehicle traffic by about 70% by mid-April according to the Department for Transport (DfT). This led to a marked reduction in emissions from vehicles. These still evolving societal changes continue to impact established driving behaviours variably by location over time. 

In this webinar, Sam Chapman explored these uncertainties with large scale telematics data offering new insights into changed behaviours impacting the nation's vehicle emissions. This presentation also detailed MobilityIn and novel work in the WM-Air project which incorporates the worlds largest telematics study into vehicle emissions.
