A method has been derived for the identification of spatial emission hot-spots on vehicle road routes using chassis dynamometer data. The work presented here uses tailpipe-out carbon monoxide (CO) levels to demonstrate the application of the method. The approach is used to analyse critically methods used by legislators that derive road-side emission levels from the vehicle emission inventory and legislative emission levels. The work presented in this paper demonstrates that the generic approach using vehicle speed, gear change patterns, spatial geographical data, and route geometric information is sufficient for the identification of the location of emission hot-spots in any journey route of interest.
