The AMITRAN project will define a reference methodology to assess the impact of intelligent transport systems on CO2 emissions. The methodology shall be used as a reference by future projects and covers both passenger and freight transport through a comprehensive well-to-wheel approach. Different modes are addressed: road, rail, and shipping (short sea and inland navigation).
- Develop a CO2 assessment methodology for ICT measures that includes multimodal passenger and freight transport and takes into account the whole chain of effects (from user behaviour to CO2 production);
- Design open interfaces for models and simulation tools implementing the project’s methodology;
- Establish a generic scaling up methodology and publicly available database with statistics to translate local effects into the European level;
- Validate the proposed methodology and its implementation using data available from other projects or studies;
- Produce an online checklist and a handbook that can be used as a reference by future projects.
1 November 2011 – 30 April 2014
Co-funded by the 7th Framework Programme, FP7-ICT-2011-7
Partners: DLR, Tecnalia, PTV, ERTICO - ITS Europe, ECORYS, TEAMNET
