What is |co2mpas|?
==================
|co2mpas| is backward-looking longitudinal-dynamics |CO2| and fuel-consumption
simulator for light-duty M1 & N1 vehicles (cars and vans), specially crafted to
*estimate the CO2 emissions of vehicles undergoing NEDC* testing based on the
emissions produced *WLTP testing* during :term:`type-approval`, according to
the :term:`EU legislation`\s *1152/EUR/2017 and 1153/EUR/2017* (see `History`_
section, below).

It is an open-source project
(`EUPL 1.1+ <https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/software/page/eupl>`_) developed for
Python-3.6+. It runs either as a *console command* or as a
*desktop GUI application*, and it uses Excel-files or pure python structures
(dictionary and lists) for its input & output data.

History
-------
The *European Commission* has introduced the *WLTP* as the test procedure for
the type I test of the European type-approval of Light-duty vehicles as of
September 2017. Its introduction has required the adaptation of |CO2|
certification and monitoring procedures set by European regulations (443/2009,
510/2011, 1152/EUR/2017 and 1153/EUR/2017). European Commission’s *Joint
Research Centre* (JRC) has been assigned the development of this vehicle
simulator to facilitate this adaptation.

The European Regulation setting the conditions for using |co2mpas| can be
found in `the Comitology Register
<http://ec.europa.eu/transparency/regcomitology/index.cfm?do=search.documentdetail&dos_id=0&ds_id=45835&version=2>`_
after its adoption by the *Climate Change Committee* which took place on
June 23, 2016, and its 2nd vote for modifications, in April 27, 2017.

Installation
============
.. _start-install-dev:

To install |co2mpas| use (with root privileges):

.. code-block:: console

    $ pip install co2mpas

Or download the latest git version and use (with root privileges):

.. code-block:: console

    $ python setup.py install


Install extras
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Some additional functionality is enabled installing the following extras:

- ``cli``: enables the command line interface.
- ``sync``: enables the time series synchronization tool (i.e.,
  `syncing <https://github.com/vinci1it2000/syncing>`_ previously named
  ``datasync``).
- ``gui``: enables the graphical user interface.
- ``plot``: enables to plot the |co2mpas| model and the workflow of each run.
- ``io``: enables to read/write excel files.
- ``driver``: enables the driver model (currently is not available).

To install co2mpas and all extras, do:

.. code-block:: console

    $ pip install 'co2mpas[all]'

Quick Start
===========
The following steps are basic commands to get familiar with |co2mpas| procedural
workflow using the command line interface:

- `Run`_
- `Input file`_
- `Data synchronization`_

Run
---
To run |co2mpas| with some sample data, you have to:

1. Generate some demo files inside the ``./input`` folder, to get familiar with
   the input data (for more info check
   the `link <_build/co2mpas/co2mpas.cli.html#co2mpas-demo>`__)::

    ## Generate the demo files and open a demo file.
    $ co2mpas demo ./input
    $ start ./input/co2mpas_conventional.xlsx

2. Run |co2mpas| and inspect the results in the ``./output`` folder.
   The workflow is plotted on the browser (for more info check the
   `link <_build/co2mpas/co2mpas.cli.html#co2mpas-run>`__)::

    ## Run co2mpas and open the output folder.
    $ co2mpas run ./input/co2mpas_conventional.xlsx -O ./output -PL
    $ start ./output

Input file
----------
To create an input file with your data, you have to:

1. Generate an empty input template file (i.e., ``vehicle.xlsx``) inside
   the ``./input`` folder::

    ## Generate template file.
    $ co2mpas template ./input/vehicle.xlsx -TT input

2. Follow the instructions provided in the excel file to fill the required
   inputs::

    ## Open the input template.
    $ start ./input/vehicle.xlsx

   :align: center

Data synchronization
--------------------
To synchronize the `dyno` and `OBD` data with the theoretical cycle, you have
to:

1. Generate a `synchronization template` file ``wltp.xlsx``::

    ## Generate template file.
    $ co2mpas syncing template ./to_sync/wltp.xlsx -CT wltp -WC class3b -GB automatic

   .. note::
      With the command above, the file contains the theoretical ``WLTP``
      velocity profile for an ``automatic`` vehicle of ``class3b``. For more
      info type ``co2mpas syncing template -h`` or click the
      `link <_build/co2mpas/co2mpas.cli.html#co2mpas-syncing-template>`__
2. Fill the ``dyno`` and ``obd`` sheets with the relative data collected in the
   laboratory::

    ## Open the input template.
    $ start ./to_sync/wltp.xlsx

3. Synchronize the data with the theoretical velocity profile::

    $ co2mpas syncing sync ./to_sync/wltp.xlsx ./sync/wltp.sync.xlsx

4. Copy/Paste the synchronized data (``wltp.sync.xlsx``) contained in the
   ``synced`` sheet into the relative sheet of the input template::

    ## Open the synchronized data.
    $ start ./sync/wltp.sync.xlsx
