Develop an Integrated Data Management System at the Microscopic, Mesoscopic, and Macroscopic Levels to Assess the Environmental Impacts of Transportation Systems

Vehicle emission and associated transportation activity data (e.g. volume, speed, and acceleration) are essential resources in the development and calibration of emission models, and in the optimization of traffic control strategy for livable environment. During the past decade, several institutions within the proposed University Transportation Center (UTC) such as Virginia Tech (VT) and Texas Southern University (TSU) have collected significant amounts of vehicle emission and transportation activity data by using equipments such as the portable emission measurement systems (PEMS) and Global Positioning System (GPS). This is a valuable source for transportation environmental studies, which is however never integrated and unified. In this research, an integrated data management system containing a mega data bank will be established by utilizing resources from all relevant new UTC institutions at micro, meso, and macro levels.
