Remote sensing city measurements

LENS builds up on the City Air Remote Emissions Sensing (CARES) Horizon 2020 project. LENS has opted for using enhanced remote sensing detection (RSD) that can reliably check a great number of vehicles in a relatively short time.

Various remote emission sensing concepts have been further developed, validated, and demonstrated.

Remote sensing measurements were conducted in 2021 and 2022 in Milan (IT) and Prague (CZ).

Field surveys

LENS carries out roadside noise measurements during field surveys and provides local support to the survey locations in Flanders (BE), Paris (FR), and Rome (IT).

LENS will demonstrate the impact of different measures on the environment and health by measuring noise levels in actual conditions, both on board and at the roadside.

Measurements will be modelled based on the new data collected, allowing to provision of a baseline LV contribution to noise in urban and non-urban areas in the EU.

City Platform

LENS’s City Platform enables cities, regions, and other local administrations to exchange with experts on the topic of noise and air pollution of LVs.

The open exchange allows the project to gather information and local experience with this vehicle class, while local administrations get direct access to LENS’s diverse consortium.

City Platform members will be participating in two workshops and LENS’s final conference within the project’s three years duration, in addition to capacity-building activities.
