Development of a Hybrid Traffic Simulation Framework for Environmental Evaluation for ITS Applications

The purpose of this paper is to introduce the development of a hybrid traffic simulation framework (HTSF) to evaluate ITS applications with CO2 emissions. This study is a part of the Energy ITS Project, and the authors developed the prototype using this framework harmonized with CO2 emission model (EM). The HTSF provides a simulation environment to combine three traffic simulation models in different resolutions. ITS applications should be evaluated comprehensively because there are many ITS applications which have different scales of impact. Therefore, the HTSF in this study considered that the output of CO2 emissions including a variety of impacts from ITS applications can be estimated for the target area. This study is a part of the research in the Energy ITS project organized by NEDO (New Energy and Technology Development Organization) in Japan.
