European solution aims to reduce technological dependency

NEMO’s uniquely European solution will strengthen Europe’s technological edge.

In addition to NEMO’s direct impacts, one of the competitive benefits of developing a uniquely European solution for remote-sensoing technology will be a decreased dependency on international manufacturers.

In addition, NEMO’s flexibility and integration approach will make it possible to adapt the technology to the various European infrastructures and to the very different needs of governments, police forces, city councils and infrastructure operators. NEMO will develop RS technology and know-how further in Europe, making the EU more technologically competitive.

Some of NEMO’s key impacts are

  • Reduction of the negative effects of air- and noise pollution
  • At least 30% reduction of exhaust emissions and 20% for noise in targeted zones
  • Provision of the necessary technological leap to measure emissions with greater sensitivity to secure sufficient measurement for future cleaner vehicles.
  • Creation of a methodology to calculate externalities caused by real noise and exhaust emissions, to apply variable pricing to high emitters.
  • Remove Europe’s current dependency on US manufacturers of remote sensing technology and develop remote sensing technology and know-how further in Europe, making the EU more technologically competitive
  • See the full list of impacts here.
