On February 12th -14th, 2014 the first field component test sessions campaign have been carried out. More specifically, mobile traffic and air quality measurements have been taken through a first prototype of the INTEGREEN mobile system installed on board of a test vehicle. A special On-Board Unit (OBU) has been developed in the last months by using a set of low cost sensors. Thanks to this OBU it is possible not only to collect distributed data about air quality but also to evaluate traffic conditions through an analysis of the car dynamics data (e.g. speed, acceleration, position, etc. ). This technology has been tested for the first time on the roads of the city of Bolzano.
