In the USA a company that sold software to manipulate boardcomputers got a very high penalty. The software was mainly built in to diesel powered pick-up trucks were the partikel filter was removed. The software mislead the computers that monitor the emissions so the readings were normal.
The system was sold for Ford, GM and Ram pick-up trucks. The company that provided the software now has to take back 9.000 devices, and pay 157.000 Us Dollars in to a fund. Apart from that they have to pay a fine of half a milion Us Dollars to the EPA. That is the Enviromental Protection Agency.
In Europe everybody is waiting for the implementation of Euro 6. The knoledge about the diagnose systems is still unknown to a lot of users. Accourding to the EU reglementations the authorities get the possibility to stop trucks to check the emissions. The Americans are one step ahead and they show how high the penaltys can be when truck drivers are caught minipulating.
