The time required depends on complexity, factors to assess, different scenarios and options, and availability, usability and quality of data.
Knowledge of microscopic/macroscopic modelling is required
Model input data, e.g. traffic counts and expected percentage changes resulting from a specific ITS application, based on previous deployments or trials.

Amitran is an assessment methodology. It provides a framework for evaluating the effects of Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) applications for transport in terms of CO2 emissions. It therefore supports the deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems to enable more efficient and sustainable goods transport and passenger mobility.
The methodology results from the 36-month Amitran project (November 2011 - September 2014), supported by the European Commission (DG Information Society and Media) under the 7th Framework Programme of Research and Technological Development.The assessment itself requires the use of models and data and the expertise to apply them. Amitran is not a tool that can replace modelling or analysis, it is a methodology to aid the analysis process and to provide guidance and examples. It provides a checklist, a knowledge base, model interfaces and links to some data sets.
