Analysis of Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Road Transport Using Taxi Trips

Mohammadhossein Ghahramani, Francesco Pilla
2021 IEEE Access  
In line with this objective, we propose an intelligent model to study carbon dioxide emissions from road transport using taxi trips in Dublin, Ireland.  ...  We present how an intelligent approach can be implemented to model CO2 emissions from road transport. The model categorizes taxis based on different features related to the emissions they release.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT For the purpose of Open Access, the author has applied a CC BY public copyright licence to any Author Accepted Manuscript version arising from this submission.  ...
