Improving Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory Estimation of Heavy-Duty Trucks

The goal of the proposed research is to improve data and methods for estimating Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions inventory of heavy-duty trucks. In order to achieve this goal, the following objectives are set: (1) developing new algorithms for estimating truck traffic speed from single-loop detector traffic monitoring systems, (2) generating truck activity data from single-loop detector systems, (3) validating default values of truck activity and emission factors in existing emissions modeling tools, (4) filling the gap of truck emissions factors at high-speed driving, and (5) constructing an improved GHG emissions inventory of heavy-duty trucks. This proposal will be co-sponsored by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
