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 traffic and emission modelling at micro and macro scales.
The methodology will enable the use of a variety of emission and traffic models, with a particular emphasis given to:
The methodology will be validated by application in the Turin, Madrid, and Roma areas.

The work will address primarily the following ICT categories:

  1. Traffic management and control systems
  2. Access management systems
  3. Navigation and travel information systems
  4. Eco-driving
  5. Advanced driver assistance systems
  6. Accident avoidance (potential to model traffic with and without accident but not to model impact of safety systems on accident prevention).
