Exhaust from construction equipment is one of the major sources of Greenhouse Gas emissions in the construction industry. And collecting, monitoring, and managing equipment emissions in a real time environment will help ensure contractor's compliance with applicable emission regulations and contractual requirements. Existing emission compliance systems, however, fail to address the complexity of construction operations. This paper presents an ad hoc network optimization model for construction

Equipment specific emission data is collected by a device attached to each vehicle and transmitted through the ad hoc network to reach the data processing server. The optimal data transmission mechanism is modeled for minimizing data loss during transmission. The paper also demonstrates the highly efficiency and accuracy of the model through a simulation of various equipment distribution patterns and a discussion of relaxed transmission capacity.
