Instantaneous Road Traffic Emissions Modelling System for cities

Project description

A system to model road-traffic emissions for cities

In recent years, there has been rising concern for the environment, and along with it, a rush, in a multitude of sectors, to research and develop new ways to prevent ecological collapse and improve sustainability. One sector of high importance is that concerned with road traffic in cities, where emissions produce severe effects on citizens’ health and the environment. New emerging technologies in transport are arriving and a change in urban mobility paradigm has begun. This poses a unique opportunity to develop innovative tools needed to tackle urban air pollution. With this in mind, the EU-funded project IRTEMS will develop an instantaneous, high-resolution road-traffic-emission-modelling system that can be applied at city scale. Research results will be disseminated to various target audiences and will be accessible for scientific publications
