Abstract

Due to the development of industry and commerce, the percentage of fuel consumptions and emissions of the transport sector is increasing in recent years. As a result, the levels of CO2 and other emissions have worsened the environment, and thus global-warming and air-pollution issues need to be incorporated within the planning and operation of transportation system. This research proposes two energy consumption and emission models for mixed traffic flows under a wide variety of advanced traffic management strategies. These two models are defined as the link-based and the trip-based fuel consumption and emission model. The link-based model is developed based on link characteristics, including static and dynamic attributes of the link, such as link length, number of vehicles, and average speed on links. The trip-based model calculates fuel consumption and emission based on trip characteristics, such as vehicle movement trajectory. These two models are integrated with a simulation-assignment model, DynaTAIWAN. Numerical experiments are conducted to illustrate the proposed models. Traffic management strategies, including real-time information and advanced traffic control systems, are evaluated based on the performance of fuel consumption and emission. The experiment results show the models are robust and advanced traffic management strategies can indeed reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
