Estimating Network-Wide Emissions with Macroscopic Traffic Models

The project will begin the investigation of the ways that traffic variables relate to vehicle emissions. Once it is clear which traffic variables are the most important to predict accurately, the relevant macroscopic relationships can be developed to obtain them directly. The team will construct a microscopic traffic simulation experiment which will produce traffic performance metrics that become inputs for the emissions models. After using the models to extract relevant data, the team will look at the aggregate relationships between network level parameters and emissions rates.
