Eco-Friendly Intelligent Transportation System Freight Strategies

The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, two of the busiest ports in the nation, provide significant contribution toward economic growth and vitality for the South Coast Air Basin. However, port-related goods movement operations and traffic are also responsible for a large portion of criteria pollutants and greenhouse gasses in the region, with disproportionate impacts on communities adjacent to the ports and along goods movement corridors. Eco-friendly Intelligent Transportation Systems (ECO-ITS) including Freight Advanced Traveler Information and Eco-Approach and Departure provide optimized scheduling and ecofriendly speed guidance for freight trucks. The proposed research will analyze existing ECO-ITS programs and utilize integrated global positioning system (GPS) data loggers to log real-time vehicle and engine/after treatment data to accurately establish truck baseline fuel consumption and emissions and quantify fuel and emission savings. Based on the results, researchers will provide a set of recommendations on effective approaches for deploying ECO-ITS freight strategies.
