Abstract: This report presents a literature review on the energy and environmental impacts of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technologies, a presentation of the development of deployment/modeling scenarios, and a description of the modeling effort. The two-fold objective of this project was to: 1) identify those ITS technologies and systems that have positive environmental effects, and 2) rank order those technologies according to their energy and emission benefits and net reduction in VMT. The authors examine the policy context and regulatory arena in which ITS technologies are deployed. They also provide scenarios and market penetration estimates developed to form the basis of modeling efforts with the INTEGRATION model.
