Urban Electric Mobility Impacts on Road Pollutant Emissions: The Role of ITS & Traffic Management Solutions

Road pollutant emissions in urban context have reached unsustainable values exceeding law-limits. Many efforts have been done adopting “green” policies and “green” traffic management operations. Through the emission regulation procedure, vehicle industry provides to the market less pollutant vehicles; but it is not still enough. Electric and hybrid vehicles seem to be the best and suitable solution to combine and integrate the increase of public transport users. Through a first case study in the city of Rome (Italy), the paper wants to assess the emissions reduction and the role of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and traffic management solution in the incoming changes in fleet compositions.
