Abstract
This work aims to obtain high resolution NOx and PM10 emissions related to traffic activity at a hot-spot in Madrid (Spain). For that, twelve representative scenarios for a heavily trafficked roundabout are simulated with the traffic microsimulation model VISSIM. Measured traffic data (fluxes and fleet composition) are used as input for the model to obtain speed-time profiles for each vehicle. These profiles are used to predict representative emission factors for different vehicle classes in the VERSIT+micro model, through the ENVIVER interface. The emission factors are compared with the ones of COPERT IV, a widely used average-speed model, as a preliminary model assessment. The results are strongly influenced by low average speeds due to saturated traffic situations.
