  1. 1. Soft measures to shift modality

    Author : Alfred Söderberg; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soft transport measures; Modal shift; Innovation; ICT; E-bikes; Segmentation; Motivation; Evaluation;

    Abstract : Traffic accumulated by cars is responsible for considerable problems in our cities. The problem is partly about the negative effects on human health due to harmful particulate emissions, noise, traffic accidents and sedentary lifestyles, partly about the space it occupies, which leads to congestion, and the fact that valuable land is taken up by road infrastructure and parking lots.

  2. 2. Green Logistics through Modal Shift - exploring the role of the transport capacity contract

    Author : Fredrik Eng Larsson; Teknisk logistik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; green logistics; modal shift; mode choice; capacity management; supply chain contracting; intermodal transport;

    Abstract : Among policy-makers in Europe the modal shift - a shift från polluting modes of freight transport to less polluting modes - has been a popular suggestion for reducing CO2-emissions of transportation. In particular, intermodal road-rail solutions, where a combination of road and rail transport is utilized to move trailers and containers, have been stressed as an important measure to reach de desired reduction in emissions.

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; modal shift; urban sustainability; transport planning; pre- and post haulage; rail freight; sustainable freight transport; Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development; urban freight transport; longer and heavier vehicles; intermodal road-rail transport;

    Abstract : Intermodal road-rail transport (IRRT) has a significant urban dimension that affects the environmental benefits and the modal shift potential of rail freight. A sustainable modal shift, i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Automated Patient-Specific Multi-tissue Segmentation of MR Images of the Head

    Author : Mahmood Qaiser; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 3D image segmentation; mean shift; Bayesian; Magnetic resonance; brain or head tissues; source localization.;

    Abstract : The automated segmentation of magnetic resonance (MR) images of the human head is an active area of research in the field of neuroimaging. The resulting segmentation yields a patient-specific labeling of individual tissues and makes possible quantitative characterization of these tissues (e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigating the impacts of ICT-mediated services - The case of public transport traveller information
