Onboard Diagnostics and Measurement in the Automotive Industry, Shipbuilding and Aircraft Construction, published by SAE International, offers readers a report on the recent developments on the determination of emissions and the estimation of concentration of pollutants in the exhaust pipe, using technologies such as intelligent microcontrollers, microsensors, and microactuators systems on board. The book, which is written by Michael Palocz-Andresen, is useful in understanding how the European Union and the United States address the problem of transport-generated emissions. The information goes beyond the more common emissions issues encountered in the automotive arena (including light-duty and heavy commercial vehicles), to expand upon the upcoming and similar concerns derived from air and sea transport. The book is suitable for those studying or working in the areas of transportation technology, sustainability, legislation, environment, and climate protection.
