Abstract: In this paper, we introduce an open-source model "MOVESTAR " to calculate thefuel consumption and pollutant emissions of motor vehicles. This model isdeveloped based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s (EPA) Motor VehicleEmission Simulator (MOVES), which provides an accurate estimate of vehicleemissions under a wide range of user-defined conditions. Originally, MOVESrequires users to specify many parameters through its software, includingvehicle types, time periods, geographical areas, pollutants, vehicle operatingcharacteristics, and road types. In this paper, MOVESTAR is developed as asimplified version, which only takes the second-by-second vehicle speed dataand vehicle type as inputs. To enable easy integration of this model, itssource code is provided in various languages, including MATLAB and C++. A casestudy is introduced in this paper to illustrate the effectiveness of the modelin the development of advanced vehicle technology.
