Modelling how changes in the driving cycle affect fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission rates: the first stage. (2006)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Kirby, H. (2006). Modelling how changes in the driving cycle affect fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission rates: the first stage. In A. Ahmed (Ed.), World Sustainable Development Outlook 2006. Global and Local Resources in Achieving Sustainable De

This paper describes a simplified procedure for estimating the fuel consumed and carbon dioxide emitted as a result of traffic demand management measures or other policy instruments. The usual methods may be based on second-by-second traffic simulati...

A review of vehicular emission models and driving cycles (2002)
Journal Article
Esteves-Booth, A., Muneer, T., Kubie, J., & Kirby, H. (2002). A review of vehicular emission models and driving cycles. Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science, 216(8), 777-797. https://doi

This article reviews the latest and relevant work on both vehicular emission models and driving cycles. The three main types of emission models, namely emission factor models, average speed models and modal models, are covered. Each project is analys...

The Effects of Detector Spacing on Traffic Forecasting Performance Using Neural Networks (2001)
Journal Article
Chen, H., Dougherty, M. S., & Kirby, H. R. (2001). The Effects of Detector Spacing on Traffic Forecasting Performance Using Neural Networks. Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering, 16(6), 422-430. https://doi.org/10.1111/0885-9507.00244

An investigation was made as to how short-term traffic forecasting on motorways and other trunk roads is related to the density of detectors. Forecasting performances with respect to different detector spaces have been investigated with both simulate...
