Track Testing for SmartWay Verification

Track testing is a method for measuring fuel economy performance with full-scale vehicles and technologies in controlled conditions. For the EPA SmartWay Program, a modified version of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J1321 Track Test procedure is used to assess the fuel savings of certain aerodynamic trailer technologies. These protocols use closed tracks that can accommodate tractor-trailers at highway speeds.
