Estimation of operating cost, fuel consumption and pollutant emissions for evaluating intersection and mid-block traffic conditions is useful for design, operations and planning purposes in traffic management. This paper describes the method to model operating cost, fuel consumption and emissions (CO2, CO, HC, NOx) in the aaSIDRA intersection analysis and aaMotion trip / drive-cycle simulator software packages developed by Akcelik & Associates. aaSIDRA and aaMotion were renamed as SIDRA INTERSECTION and SIDRA TRIP.
