Abstract

Determining the traffic flows by considering not only the vehicle categories, but the greenhouse gas emission and the fuel consumption as well is an emerging problem of our days. However, only with static data about the vehicle fleet in a region, traffic flows cannot be characterized well enough. For a complex traffic control model the traffic flows considering the EURO emission standards have to be determined. To decide on the share between the different standards, the rolling vehicle fleet had to be recorded, and these dynamic data had to be analyzed for further research. Furthermore, this investigation was made in separate traffic conditions and on different infrastructures. The point of the paper is to determine the qualitative consistency both on urban and highway roads, and explore if there is a relationship between them.
