Quantifying the Environmental and Health Impacts of Curbside Management for Emerging Multi-modal Mobility Services

The proposed research aims to investigate how curbside management strategies may help address traffic bottlenecks on roads and sidewalks due to intensive pick-up/drop-off (PUDO) activities, thus mitigating the environmental and health impacts on vulnerable road users (VRUs) resulting from vehicular emissions. In this project, the research team will develop an integrated simulation platform in SUMO to model the microscopic interactions between different modes, estimate the vehicular emissions and pollutant dispersion, quantify human exposure for VRUs, and determine the effectiveness of different curbside management strategies in terms of environmental and health impacts. The research team will use a case study to demonstrate the model capability.
