CBC: U of M engineer explains how Volkswagen cheated on emissions tests
September 24, 2015 —
As the CBC reports: Volkswagen rigged their emissions tests using a device familiar to car engineer and University of Manitoba associate professor Ed Hohenberg.
The automaker cheated using something known as a defeat device, which makes a car’s engine run cleaner when undergoing emissions testing, he said.
“The engine software recognizes when the engine is being run through the EPA emission testing procedure.”
Very important to know!
Thank you, Mr. Hohenberg and also UM.
