Abstract
ICT-based traffic measures are effective to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions; however, they present trade-offs regarding traffic performance. Although previous research suggests complementarity among ICT measures, there is a lack of studies evaluating the impact of combined ICT-measures in urban areas. This paper analyzes the environmental and traffic performance overlaps, complementarities and synergies of variable speed limits (VSL), ecodriving (ED) and green navigation (GN) systems applied to Madrid Metropolitan area. The measures have been simulated combining a macroscopic transport model with a macroscopic emissions model. A total of 54 scenarios have been simulated including the measures in isolation and the combination of GN-VSL and GN ? ED for congested and free flow traffic conditions and for different market penetration of the measures. Results compare the effects of the measures in isolation with the effects of the combined measure. GN-ED show perfect environmental and traffic performance synergies for penetration rates lower than 50% and free flow traffic conditions.
