Influence of coordinated traffic lights parameters on roadside pollutant concentrations

The paper examines the effects of coordinated traffic lights on carbon monoxide (CO) and benzene (C6H6) roadside concentrations in an urban area of Palermo in Southern Italy. Traffic loop detectors and one pollution-monitoring are used to collect data for use in DRACULA traffic microsimulator software. CO and C6H6 roadside concentrations associated with varying cycle and offset times of the coordinated traffic lights are estimated using a neural network. Two functions were set up describing the relations of pollutant concentrations in term of cycle and offset time.
