Improving the CO₂ Reduction Effect of the Green Wave Advisory System

Green Wave Advisory (GWA) systems are being developed and evaluated as part of efforts to help reduce vehicle carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions. A previous simulation evaluated the effectiveness of providing support only when the vehicle is predicted to stop at the nearest traffic signal ahead of the vehicle. Under these conditions, however, the GWA system did not enable a significant reduction in CO₂ emissions. Consequently, the system was modified to provide support when the vehicle is predicted to stop at a traffic signal that may not be the nearest traffic signal. The results of a further evaluation indicated that the CO₂ reduction effect of the system improved to between 6.7% and 9.2% with a 100% installation rate.
