Analysis of Variation in Exhaust Emissions Near an Intersection Based on Vehicle Emission Data

An investigation was conducted of the exhaust gas emissions near an intersection and how they varied according to different ways of going through the intersection (turning right or left or going straight, with and without stopping) by using an on-board measurement system equipped with gas sensors and a Global Positioning System receiver. The emission factors were found to greatly depend on whether the vehicle was idling while waiting to go through the intersection. Emission factors for driving patterns with long idling times were around 10 times larger than those without idling.
