Emissions and fuel consumption testing includes a number of different tests design to assess vehicle and engine performance under a range of simulated real-world conditions. As an integral part of the product development process, early testing can help identify different technical solutions and evaluate their relative effectiveness, and for determining the best overall approach to improving fuel efficiency and GHG reducing emissions. Testing also provides evidence of compliance with performance standards required for type approval or certification. Finally, random testing conducted on production run samples can ensure that finished systems and parts perform in accordance with design specifications and may be required for conformity of production (CoP) documentation.
