Traffic on Streets
a major contributor to air pollution
Eco-Sensitive Traffic Management balances economic and individual demands with environmental impact
Today’s society and economy are built on individual mobility and transportation of goods. On the other hand, traffic contributes significantly to air pollution and climate change. Deep insights into the correlation of air pollution and traffic flow, speed, and fleet composition allow for effective and dynamic countermeasures without unnecessary disadvantages. This information enables traffic and city planners to make better – fact-based – decisions and is a prerequisite for traffic managers for implementing eco-sensitive traffic management.
