What is the real impact of ICT on transport CO2 emissions? How can we best measure this?

28/09/2012 – Those are the questions that the ICT-Emissions project will attempt to answer during its three years of activity. ICT-Emissions indeed aims at developing a novel methodology to evaluate the impact of ICT related measures on mobility, vehicle energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The proposed methodology, which will be demonstrated using commercially available softwares, combines […]


Towards guidelines for the best use of ICT in road transport to contribute to reduce CO2 emissions from the sector

28/09/2012 – The innovative combination of traffic, driver, and emission models produces a toolbox that can simulate the impact on energy and CO2 of infrastructure measures (traffic management, dynamic traffic signs, etc.), driver assistance systems and ecosolutions (speed/cruise control, start/stop systems, etc.) or a combination of measures (cooperative systems). Following the research carried on in the […]
