  1. 1. On Traffic Situation Predictions for Automated Driving of Long Vehicle Combinations

    Author : Peter Nilsson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; braking; steering; heavy trucks; automated driving; long vehicle combination; active safety; vehicle dynamics; prediction; driver behaviour;

    Abstract : The introduction of longer vehicle combinations for road transports than are currently allowed is an important viable option for achieving the environmental goals on transported goods in Sweden and Europe by the year 2030. This thesis addresses how driver assistance functionality for high-speed manoeuvring can be designed and realized for prospective long vehicle combinations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improving emergency braking performance of heavy vehicles

    Author : Leon Henderson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heavy vehicles; pneumatic brake actuator; ABS; pneumatic braking system; Slip control braking; HGV; vehicle testing; tyre dynamics;

    Abstract : Previous studies by the Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium (CVDC) have suggested that, by improving the control bandwidth of conventional Heavy Goods Vehicle(HGV) brake actuators and using a ‘slip control’ braking strategy, HGV stopping distances could be reduced by up to 30% over existing systems. The work covered in this thesis looks to: validate the CVDC’s previous braking performance predictions through Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) simulation, investigate how in-plane tyre dynamics may influence such a system’s performance, develop and build a next generation high-bandwidth braking system for vehicle implementation and carry out comparative back-to-back vehicle tests between the new system and commercially available HGV ABS.

  4. 4. Heavy Vehicle Maintenance in an Industrial Network Perspective: Implications of Embeddedness and Interdependencies

    Author : Klas Hedvall; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Business Networks; Transport Solutions; Trucks; Activities; Transport Service Triad; Road Transports; ARA Model; Vehicle Maintenance; Interdependencies; Maintenance; Embeddedness;

    Abstract : Road transport solutions are often complex and involve numerous stakeholders. To secure that goods arrive in a timely and efficient manner, companies must cooperate and interact to define, implement and operate the transport solutions required. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Method to Identify Future Potential of Vehicle Safety Technology

    Author : Johan Strandroth; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; future crashes; collision avoidance; evaluation; autonomous braking; Delta-v; active safety; vehicle safety technology; CPR;

    Abstract : In the design of a safe road transport system there is a need to better understand the safety challenges lying ahead. One way of doing that is to evaluate safety technology with retrospective analysis of real world crashes. However, by using retrospective data there is the risk of adapting safety innovations to scenarios irrelevant in the future. READ MORE
