MOBILE5 Vehicle Emission Modeling Software
This web site contains information about MOBILE5, including vehicle emission modeling software for MOBILE5a, MOBILE5a-h, and MOBILE5b. Software for these three versions are also found on this web site. MOBILE5 estimates emissions of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and oxides of nitrogen from highway vehicles.
Note: MOBILE6 is EPA's most up-to-date model for estimating these emissions.
