ICT-Emissions Final Conference: Environmental and climate assessment in the transport area
ICT-Emissions has developed a novel methodology and has validated tools to evaluate the impact of ICT-related transport measures on mobility, vehicle energy consumption and CO2 emissions of vehicle fleets at the local scale by combining traffic and emission modelling at micro and macro scales.
The project has used existing commercial models and has fine-tuned them to simulate the impacts of ICT measures. This activity was accompanied by real-world experiments to validate the performance and the accuracy of the methodology.
Contribution to Horizon 2020 projects
ICT-Emissions products are a response to the current Horizon 2020 work programme “11 Smart, green and integrated transport” calling for innovation in the transport area aimed to minimise the transport systems' impact on climate and on air pollution, and to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels.
A detailed overview of how ICT-Emissions alligns with Horizon 2020's objectives and what the project can contribute to the environmental and climate assessment in the transport area can be found here.
ICT-Emissions Final Conference
The event will focus on:
- results from specific real-world application cases in selected cities where ITS measures are deployed;
- how to develop synergies and common standards for local traffic management;
- ITS products development and market penetration.
