Abstract

The paper presents an approach to analyse the impact of emissions in real urban traffic conditions on the shaping of a sustainable transport system. The authors show that developing a sustainable transport system will permit a wide range of research, experimentation and simulation of apportioning traffic streams on the transport network. Some aspects of estimating the level of harmful emissions generated by the transport network users across the country or the particular areas are presented. The paper presents the part of research in the “EMITRANSYS” project implemented by the Faculty of Transport in Warsaw University of Technology and the Poznan University of Technology.
