To make HIT the main and integrated Research Pole in the fields of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Tourism in Greece and among the top 10 relevant nodes of technology and expertise in Europe.

Acronym: MODALES
Project Title: Modify Drivers’ behaviour to Adapt for Lower Emissions
36 months (01/09/2019- 31/08/2022)

Description: The vision of MODALES is to substantially reduce air pollution from all types of on-road fleets by encouraging the adoption of low-emission driving behaviour and proper maintenance choice, improving the effectiveness of on-board diagnostics (OBD) devices and technical inspections to detect tampering, promoting retrofits for all vehicles, and developing a lasting dissemination and awareness networking platform to bring more momentum to international cooperation in reduction of transport impact on air quality within the lifetime of MODALES and beyond.


  1. Understand the nature of driving behaviour with respect to vehicle emissions.
  2. Correlate driving behaviour variability with real powertrain emissions.
  3. Correlate driving behaviour variability with emissions from brakes and tyres.
  4. Propose and validate a real-time driving assistance app for low emission driving (DALED).
  5. Assess the real effectiveness of on-board diagnostics (OBD) and technical inspections.
  6. Investigate the legal situation of tampering in Europe.
  7. Assessment of the potential impact of retrofits.
