Abstract

The road transportation sector is one of the largest emitters of Greenhouse Gases, which triggered the climate change. Much effort is dedicated to reduce the emissions, highlighting the use of Information and Communication Technologies. In this framework, the ICT-Emissions project has developed the methodology necessary to estimate the effects of ICT-measures on emissions. Based on this methodology, this paper presents the results of the measures tested in the case study of Madrid: Section Speed Control, Variable Speed Limits, Cruise Control, Eco-Driving and Green Navigation. Some of the measures have been analysed with real Floating Car Data, comparing the fuel consumption before and after implementing the ICT-measures. On the other hand, Green Navigation results are based only in simulation. Although the level of analysis is different for each of the tested measures, the results show positive values in terms of CO2 emission reductions and prove the applicability of the ICT-Emissions methodology.
