Traffic models enhancements for properly assess environmental impacts of ITS/ICT systems: generalities and eco-driving example

The paper focus on the enhancements needed in traffic simulation models to properly assess vehicle energy consumption and CO2 emissions when several innovative ITS and ICT systems are implemented. Examples of these are the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and Eco-Driving applications. The implementations of certain ITS systems not only affects the overall traffic performance but also influences the vehicle dynamic and/or driver attitude, leading to different results in terms of energy consumption depending on the way in which the differences in behaviour have been modelled. The study here presented some details on the vehicle/driver behaviour which has led to some refinements of the car-following mathematical models.
