Traditional transportation studies normally focus on the development of countermeasures for the improvement of safety and mobility of transportation systems. With the newly identified evidences and increased public concerns, the impacts of transportation activities on environment and ecologic systems attract more and more attentions. This article reviews the current air quality and vehicle emission models and real-time intelligent network control methods in ecological transportation (or called eco-transportation) systems with the efforts in reducing greenhouse gases and exhaust emissions, and improving air quality and public health. The ecological transportation system is considered in a Connected Vehicle environment, and the potential applications of the Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) techniques in ecological transportation system are also reviewed. The proposed research topics can be extended to a better understanding of complex network modeling and controls associated with the development of sustainable urban environment with the ecological transportation system.
