The purpose of this paper is estimation of total emission during idling of vehicles and validate emission results from real-world data.
MOVES201b emission model is customized for developing country like India and a case study of the Ashram intersection in Delhi has been selected in order to measure the emissions of vehicles during idling
Results show that 3.997 mg/m3 of hydrocarbon, 1.82 mg/m3 of NOx, and 17.688 mg/m3 of carbon monoxide is emitted from the cars, trucks and buses respectively at Ashram intersection in one day. As there are 600 intersections throughout Delhi, a total of 2398.055 mg/m3 of hydrocarbon, 1087.068 mg/m3 of NOx, and 10612.612 mg/m3 of carbon monoxide is emitted from cars, trucks and buses in a day in all of Delhi.
Knowledge of idling emission and fuel loss is very little for Indian traffic condition during delays
