ICT-Emissions methodology description

The documents describes the methodology developed by the ICT-emissions project for evaluating the impacts of ITC/ITS measures on mobility, vehicle energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The document is structured into three parts: The first part is a synthetic introduction of the project objectives,  useful definitions and explanations of issues to be dealt with. The second part contains a detailed description of the ITS measures,  description of the methodology, evaluation process and simulation methods, whereas the third part focuses on affected parameters and the corresponding simulation.

Case studies definitions

The document describes the Turin and Madrid case studies. A detailed technical description is followed by an introduction to the expected process and software which is being used to build the emission models. In order to test the functionality of the platform under diverse environments, different modelling software was used in each city. Turin: MT Model and AIMSUM for traffic macro and micro simulation and COPERT and CRUISE for emissions. Madrid: VISUM and VISSIM for traffic macro and micro simulation and COPERT and CRUISE for emissions. (Deliverable 5.1)

Evaluation plan for testing the ICT solutions

The document describes the evaluation plan for applying the ICT-Emissions road transport impact assessment methodology. Three chapters provide an overview of the potential users and their needs, different ITS measures currently in use, and the ICT methodology and tools. The Assessment Framework introduces the scope of the exercise and objectives, use of indexes as methods of assessment, a description of each index used to assess each objective and the expected simulation plan. The closing chapter exemplifies how to apply the evaluation methodology to a real case: the Urban Traffic Control in Turin. (Deliverable 6.1)
