EarthSense Real Time Air Quality Monitoring for Low Emission Lorry Trial

By [email protected] - 19th October 2017 - 14:02

EarthSense Systems is equipping commercial delivery vehicles with air pollution sensors as part of a project to test the performance and emissions of low-carbon lorries. The research is part of the Temperature-controlled Range-extenders and Integrated Urban Mapping of Pollution (TRIUMPH) project, led by logistics provider Kuehne + Nagel and supported by Cenex – the UK’s first Centre of Excellence for low-carbon technologies. The TRIUMPH project will see Kuehne + Nagel introduce four fully electric lorries: two range extended electric vehicles and two liquid nitrogen cooled refrigeration vehicles. These vehicles will be used to make food deliveries to Whitbread hospitality brands, such as Costa and Premier Inn. This is the first trial of its kind to make the business case for investment in zero emission capable trucks and zero emission temperature controlled transport.
