Abstract

This paper analyses pedestrian exposure to Carbon Monoxide from vehicle emissions in a single intersection scenario and shows that an increase in signal cycle lengths, although reducing vehicle emissions, increases pedestrian exposure to these emissions. The ultimate objective of this work is to propose a pedestrian friendly traffic control system that adapts to reduce pedestrian exposure while balancing the need for a reduction in vehicle emissions.
