Identification and Evaluation of Transformative Environmental Applications and Strategies

Project: Research project

Description

Arizona State University (ASU) team will be led by Professor Ram M. Pendyala of the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment. ASU will be primarily engaged in the transportation systems modeling tasks of the project. In this project, modeling tools will need to be used to analyze the impacts of alternative AERIS technologies that are aimed at making highway operations more environmentally sustainable. Pendyala and his team of students will be involved in applying new micro simulation modeling tools that they have developed, called Sim TRAVEL, for analyzing the AERIS technologies. The ASU team will be involved in defining the scenarios, identifying candidate priority technologies worthy of analysis, and interpreting outputs of the micro simulation models. ASU team will be responsible for enhancing the software systems to be suitable to analyze the types of technologies of interest to this project. The ASU team will assist the team lead in preparing deliverables and presentations as appropriate, and will attend project meetings either via telephone or in person as needed.
