CO2 and noise evaluation model linked with traffic simulation for a citywide area

This study develops a system which combines CO2 emission and road noise models with a traffic simulation model to evaluate the environmental impacts by several traffic management schemes for a citywide area. Historically, CO2 emission, road noise, and traffic simulation models have been intensively studied by quite a few researchers. However, they have been developed almost independently and a few considered a joint use of the models so that CO2 emission and/or road noise could be evaluated from the simulated traffic condition. We therefore propose a system in which the above three models are linked together. The system is validated by applying to a whole Tsukuba city and outputs from the proposed system gets reasonable agreement with the observed traffic flow, travel times, and noise levels.
