The main goal of this project is to accomplish sustainable urban traffic management

The project purpose is to integrate management needs of mobility and air quality into a single urban traffic management model.

The project implementation of the concept "instrumented city" is not only to achieve the goals of reducing pollution levels below the limits imposed by the European Directives, but also because it is essential to organise city traffic in a rational manner without causing excessive disruption to the mobility needs of citizens and achieve in a systematically way sustainable traffic levels at any time of the day.

The "instrumented city" concept enables to gather and elaborate in a cost-effective way all relevant traffic and pollution data to produce pollution predictions in real time, to calculate the effects of various hypothesis (scenarios) of traffic regulation, and to contrast the impact of the selected scenario on pollution at "hotspots" against new data collected by the same measurement instruments. Thus making a feedback loop onto the regulation system and thereby achieving fine-tuning between pollution results and traffic control measures taken in real time.

The project approach is highly innovative and represents a great scientific and technological advance in relation to current measurement and prediction of urban pollution models, which are difficult to integrate into existing traffic control systems.
