Development of Road Traffic Simulation Model for Analysis of Environmental Pollution

In this study, the loading condition was changed on a real road for trucks using an NOx measuring device. The exhaust gas was measured, and detailed data were obtained. On the basis of the obtained data, a model of NOx emission and fuel consumption was developed. It was also possible to estimate the CO2 reduction effect from the fuel consumption model. Next, models were built using the microscopic road traffic simulation model (CaTS), the exhaust gas quantity was estimated, and the usefulness of this system was shown.
