Paper Abstract

Detection of vehicle emissions and other gases will be an important part of the future ITS infrastructure, especially for enclosed roadways. The recently passed Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act and the Clean Air Amendments provide great incentive for the collection of emissions data. Enclosed roadways can use such data to control ventilation systems and detect hazardous substances. This paper examines the feasibility of using optical gas sensors for real-time control of enclosed roadways as well as regional environmental monitoring of mobile source emissions.
