Methodology for evaluating the impacts of ITC/ITS measures on mobility. Report available!

This document describes the methodology developed by ICT-Emissions project. The document is structured into three parts: Brief introduction, project objectives, useful definitions and explanations of issues to be dealt with; Detailed description of the ITS measures, description of the methodology, evaluation process and simulation methods; Affected parameters and the corresponding simulation.

Particular emphasis is given to new vehicle technologies with increasing popularity in the coming years, including start-stop systems, hybrids, plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles, etc.

Selected measures are clustered into 5 categories:

  • Driver behaviour change and eco driving;
  • Navigation and travel information;
  • Traffic management and control;
  • Demand & access management; and
  • Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

The methodology further defines the models level and points out the need of integration and enhancement of micro and macro models (traffic and emission).
