In this project, a pedestrian micro-simulation software was integrated with a vehicle micro-simulation software to investigate the interaction between pedestrians and vehicles on urban streets. A vehicle emission generation model and emission dispersion model was included as well to estimate the concentration of roadside pollutants. Consequently, the pedestrians’ exposure to roadside pollutants was estimated as well.
