Networked Monitoring of Urban Traffic Emissions

Zerui Li, Yu Kang, Ji Chang, and Wenjun Lv
Abstract—This paper presents some key points for networked monitoring of urban traffic emissions. Firstly, we introduce the remote sensing devices distributed on the urban roads to measure the emissions of passing vehicles. Secondly, we discuss how to determine the device locations by maximizing the amount of the captured vehicles. Finally, a method to identify high-emitting vehicles is proposed based on broad learning system. The experiment results show the networked monitoring system is able to inspect massive on-road vehicles in a short-term and accurately identify high-emitting vehicles.

Index Terms—High-emitter identification, location strategy, networked monitoring, vehicle emission.
