  1. 1. Making overtaking cyclists safer: Driver intention models in threat assessment and decision-making of advanced driver assistance system

    Author : Prateek Thalya; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Cyclist; Euro NCAP; Overtaking; ADAS; Driver intention; Interaction;

    Abstract : Introduction: The number of cyclist fatalities makes up 3% of all fatalities globally and 7.8% in the European Union. Cars overtaking cyclists on rural roads are complex situations. Miscommunication and misunderstandings between road users may lead to crashes and severe injuries, particularly to cyclists, due to lack of protection. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adaptive Driver Information

    Author : Staffan Davidsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering Psychology; Teknisk psykologi;

    Abstract : New societal requirements and functional growth put new demand on future driver information. Simultaneously, new technology and IT capabilities makes it possible to constantly adapt the information given to the driver for different reasons. READ MORE

  3. 3. Methods to quantify and qualify truck driver performance

    Author : Iulian Carpatorea; Slawomir Nowaczyk; Thorsteinn Rögnvaldsson; Wahde Mattias; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Driver performance; heavy-duty vehicle; fuel economy; fuel consumption; fuel prediction; truck driver;

    Abstract : Fuel consumption is a major economical component of vehicles, particularly for heavy-duty vehicles. It is dependent on many factors, such as driver and environment, and control over some factors is present, e.g. route, and we can try to optimize others, e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Driver Experience and Acceptance of Driver Support Systems - A Case of Speed Adaptation

    Author : Emeli Adell; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; speed support; ISA; driver support systems; Driver experiences; acceptance; UTAUT; ADAS; field trial;

    Abstract : Substantial research and development efforts are being made to add driver support systems to the arsenal of traffic safety measures. Obviously, the system cannot reduce fatalities and trauma until it is actually used. Hence, drivers’ experiences and acceptance of the system are of paramount importance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Operating cycle representations for road vehicles

    Author : Pär Pettersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; operating cycle; full vehicle simulation; energy usage; transport operation description; road format; CO2 emissions;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses different ways to represent road transport operations mathematically. The intention is to make more realistic predictions of longitudinal performance measures for road vehicles, such as the CO2 emissions. READ MORE
