Role of Intelligent Transport Systems in Network and Environmental Management

Leicester’s Intelligent Transport System provides a rich source of monitored, real-time and archived traffic data. Data from the Air Quality Monitoring Stations, weather stations and meteorological services have been integrated using Air Quality Monitoring and Modeling Systems. “Nowcasts” and “Forecasts” of air and noise pollution are being developed to influence public choice on time/mode of travel and assist in the management of the road network. “WebServices”, “Open Systems Architecture” with Geographical Information System, together with the MESSAGE Project’s ‘Grid enabled’ “e-Science” infrastructure, will improve the assessment of the impact of traffic on air and noise quality, the environment and health, as well as informing the City’s Climate Change Strategy and the Carbon Footprint via the 4M project.
