Objectives

The scientific and technical objectives of ICT-Emissions are summarized in the following:

  1. Developing a comprehensive methodology to assess the impacts of road transport ICT measures on CO2  by taking into account the real-world driving and traffic behaviour in urban agglomerations.
  2. Developing vehicle simulators to calculate the energy and CO2  emissions of vehicles when operating in ICT regimes, also taking into account advanced vehicle technologies (hybrids, plug-in hybrids, electric, start-stop, etc.).
  3. Simulating the impact of various ICT measures by implementing commercial traffic models at the micro and macro scales, and linking them to vehicle simulators, following the methodology developed.
  4. Validating the methodology on existing real-world ICT applications in three cities.
  5. Summarizing the impact of ICT measures on traffic, energy, and emissions in a database library.
  6. Exploiting  project results by issuing recommendations and implementation guidelines for use of best-practice ICT measures that can lead to significant energy and CO2  reductions from road transport.
