Real Driving Emissions 2017

Calibration in relation to a vehicle or engine is a systematic process of fine tuning the internal system of the electronic module unit so that the system will behave as it is, during the vehicle operation.

Completion of this course will allow the professional engineer to:

Understand real driving emissions for the next 5 years
Model, optimise and calibrate modern engine systems
Enhance their career as a Powertrain Specialist in the ever evolving field of Calibration
