An Intelligent Transportation System for Air and Noise Pollution Management in Cities

Mariam Zaky, Hassan Soubra

Abstract

Air quality and noise levels in urban cities have become major environmental concerns worldwide. Road vehicles are a primary source of air pollution in urban cities and they also are a considerable source of noise pollution. Undeniably, air and noise pollution are hazardous to human health. Managing pollution levels has become an absolute priority in order to reduce the anthropogenic impact on the environment. In this paper, we propose an Intelligent Transportation System-ITS for monitoring and managing air and noise pollution caused by road vehicles in cities. The system proposed dynamically routes a vehicle using, on the one hand, its particle emissions and noise indicators; and on the other hand, a city’s pollution levels and defined thresholds. The system proposed in this paper could be used for pollution based road tolls or taxes.
