Applications for the Environment: Real-Time Information Synthesis (AERIS)

The objective of the AERIS research program is to generate and acquire environmentally-relevant real-time transportation data, and use these data to create actionable information that support and facilitate “green” transportation choices by transportation system users and operators. Employing a multi-modal approach, the AERIS Research Program aims to encourage the development of technologies and applications that support a more sustainable relationship between transportation and the environment chiefly through fuel use reductions and resulting emissions reductions.

AERIS Operational Scenarios and Applications

The AERIS program is investigating five Operational Scenarios or bundles of connected vehicle applications, including: Eco-Signal Operations, Eco-Lanes, Low Emissions Zones, Eco-Traveler Information, and Eco-Integrated Corridor Management. Each Operational Scenario encompasses a set of applications which individually achieve environmental benefits. By strategically bundling these applications, the AERIS Program expects that these Operational Scenarios can achieve additional environment benefits above those of the individual applications. Learn more about the AERIS Operational Scenarios and Applications.
