MOVES (MOtor Vehicle Emissions Simulator) is a computer program designed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to estimate air pollution emissions from on-road mobile sources. EPA created MOVES as a state-of-the-art model for estimating emissions from all on-road vehicles including cars, trucks, motorcycles, and buses. MOVES can be used to estimate exhaust and evaporative emissions as well as brake and tire wear emissions from all types of on-road vehicles for any part of the country, except California. Officially released in 2010, the MOVES model version MOVES2010 officially replaced the previous on-road emissions model, MOBILE6.2. Subsequently, EPA has made minor revisions to this version in releases of MOVES2010a and MOVES2010b.
