Smart city: Leeds to trial tech that switches engines to electric when air pollution spikes

Smart city: Leeds to trial tech that switches engines to electric when air pollution spikes

The government's controversial air quality plan argued that cities should not introduce new charges for diesel vehicles until innovative alternative approaches to tackle air pollution had been tired first. But could that condition soon lead to UK cities embracing cutting-edge smart technologies and hybrid-electric vehicles that promise to switch to zero emission mode whenever pollution levels spike?


That is just one of the questions sparked by this week's news Leeds is to host a trial from a group of clean tech firms and research bodies that promises to demonstrate a new real-time emissions control technology.


Clean tech consultancy Cenex announced this week that it has teamed up with Leeds City Council to launch Project ACCRA, which will bring together the Transport Systems Catapult, Earthsense, Dynniq, and Tevva Motors Ltd to undertake the new trial.


The project promises to integrate real-time air quality data with electric hybrid engines, allowing them to automatically switch to zero-emission running in heavily polluted areas.
