Vehicle Motion and Emissions Mapping

In this blog we look at how the GPS data recorded with video data, or by standalone/phone-based trackers, can be used to generate insights into vehicle motion and to support approximate emissions analysis and mapping. As the introduction of zero emission vehicles to fleets will generally be a gradual process these insights may be of use to fleet operators looking to determine how to deploy a limited number…
