Abstract: With traffic being one of the main factors of air quality in urban regions, effective management instruments are required to curb its impact with measures that control and mitigate its effects in highly dynamic environments. Environmental Traffic Management (ETM) systems have demonstrated to reduce emissions in urban areas and traffic corridors, while remaining a regulating, non restrictive instrument. This paper describes the current state of the art of ETM in terms of existing technology setups, their use cases and benefits, and provides an outlook of the future of such systems based on current developments.
