Europe to investigate intelligent transportation

AMITRAN will attempt to develop a CO2 assessment methodology for information and communication technologies, including multi-modal passenger and freight transport taking into account everything from user behaviour to CO2 production. It will look to develop interfaces for models and simulation tools; validate the proposed methodology and its implementation with data from other projects and studies; and produce an online checklist and handbook…
According to Gerdien Klunder, AMITRAN’s co-ordinator and a researcher at TNO, there is currently no consistent methodology that allows scientists to measure the potential CO2 emissions that these technologies could reduce.
