Geofencing as an enabler for Zero-Emission Zones
Paper in proceedings, 2018
Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) have the ability to operate as electric vehicles.There is a potential to
reduce emissions overall and also control emissions in zones, if PHEV are controlled so that they only
use electric drive in selected areas such as cities. Through collaboration between the Norwegian Public
Roads Administration and Volvo Cars it was shown how a zero emission zone could be created in
Oslo as part of the NordicWay Norwegian pilot. The zone was shared with Volvo Cars who optimized
powertrain management to ensure no emission driving and sufficient battery power within the zone.
