Applying activity-travel data for the assessment of vehicle exhaust emissions: Application of a GPS-enhanced data collection tool

This paper describes the development of a global positioning system, enhanced data collection tool for the assessment of vehicle exhaust emissions. This involves the collection of activity and travel data on a personal digital assistant with built-in global positioning system receiver. By converting the second-by-second global positioning system based travel data into emissions, estimates are made of the exhausts produced by individual vehicle trips. Differences in travel behaviour and vehicle emissions were examined by gender and trip purpose.
