A fuzzy approach to the emission estimation

  • 1 Department of Mathematics Davutpaşa Campus –Yıldız Technical University of İstanbul, Turkey 1


In this study, emission amounts emitted from the transportation are examined by using fuzzy inference system in MATLAB. The effect of the speed and the traffic condition are taken into consideration in a fuzzy model.
