The main objective of this work was to evaluate the impact of urban development trends in mobility patterns of a medium sized Portuguese city and air quality consequences, using a sequential modeling process, comprising i) land use and transportation, TRANUS model; ii) road traffic air pollutants emissions, TREM model and; iii) air quality, TAPM model.

The accuracy and precision of air quality models are usually associated with the emission inventories. Thus, in order to assess if there are any improvements on air quality regional simulations using detailed methodology of road traffic emission estimation, a regional air quality modelling system was applied. For this purpose, a combination of top-down and(More)
Road transportation is an essential component of the European economy. However, this sector is responsible for the increase of emissions and fuel consumption from year to year. Traffic incidents are one of the main causes of congestion. This paper has the main objective to calculate the consequences in traffic performance, fuel consumption and emissions(More)
This paper focuses on the integration of multiple computational tools towards the objective of assessing emission impacts of different routes. Data from real life GPS tracks was integrated with traffic emission modelling for multiple pollutants (NO<sub>x</sub>, HC, CO and PM<sub>10</sub>) to investigate different routing strategies. The main conclusion is(More)
This paper presents the objectives and preliminary outputs of the INTERREG EUROPE project CISMOB -- Cooperative information platform for low carbon and sustainable mobility. The main vision of CISMOB is to promote innovative ways to reduce carbon footprint and increase the sustainability of urban areas by improving the efficiency in the use of urban(More)
