A TRUE Initiative study of real-world vehicle emissions has begun in Delhi National Capital Region, marking the first work of the Initiative in India.
As part of the TRUE initiative, Opus RSE and the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) are collaborating with the Delhi Transport Department, National Highways Authority of India, and the Gurugram Administration to carry out a study using Opus remote sensing technology to measure vehicle exhaust emissions at more than 15 locations across the Delhi National Capital Region (NCR), primarily in and around Delhi and Gurugram.
The TRUE study is an opportunity to collect up-to-date measurements of the current Delhi NCR fleet. More than 100,000 in-use vehicles will be measured at more than 15 locations in Delhi and Gurugram. TRUE, in collaboration with the Centre for Science and Environment, will complement the emissions testing study with a training session for government stakeholders to support wider adoption of remote sensing programs in Indian cities.
