Abstract: This paper describes the development of the car driving cycle for the capital city of Tehran. Driving cycle is an essential requirement for the evaluation of the exhaust emissions using the chassis dynamometer test. In this study, the driving data are collected from several cars under real traffic conditions. The method used in this study for data analysis is based on the definition and the classification of the microtrips. The developed cycle is named TEH_CAR. The results reveal that the TEH_CAR cycle characteristics are close to the transient FTP cycle and different from the synthetic ECE cycle.
