In the last few years there has been a rapid growth in the development and availability of low-cost sensors for measuring pollutant concentrations. The purpose of this meeting is to review the range and performance, current and future applications, and appropriate uses of such equipment. In addition to the main speakers we would like to invite short contributions from those currently using low-cost sensors in monitoring and research. We hope that this meeting will encourage networking and collaboration between those developing, testing and applying low-cost sensors.

!! This meeting was been postponed to Friday 16th March due to bad weather!!
Mark Peckham from Cambustion will present some recent data recorded using their fast response emissions analyzers from on-board a variety of vehicles. The data from TfL’s “West London” route shows the impact of urban driving and the accurate position of pollution “hot spots” caused by speed bumps, harsh accelerations, engine warm-up and general sub-optimal engine operation. A comparison is made between various ages of vehicles and their NOx polluting characteristics.
A second presentation will be ‘Shipping emissions in the London Context’. Aether will be presenting on their recent work for the Port of London Authority, which informed the Authority’s first draft air quality strategy. The work involved the development of a “port wide” shipping emissions inventory and on-board vessel emission testing.
Finally, there will be a short presentation on some current policy initiatives from the GLA.
This was a joint meeting of APRIL Transport and Health groups. The speakers were Dr Audrey de Nazelle, from Imperial College London, on active travel, air pollution and health; and David Talbot, from Transport for London, on the eLIPTIC (Electrification of public transport in cities) project. This project is looking at using the spare capacity of London Underground electricity network for recharging Surface Transport Electric Vehicles (buses, support fleet vehicles, etc.).

There were three presentations at this meeting. Rosalind O’Driscoll, from Imperial College London, spoke about real world NOX and CO2 emissions from modern petrol and diesel passenger cars. Finn Coyle, from Transport for London, then talked about retrofitting TfL buses to meet the Euro VI standard. The third presentation was by Gloria Esposito, from the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, about the design of the Clean Vehicle Retrofit Accreditation Scheme.
