    Author : Ferenc Weiczer; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The aim of the research documented and discussed in this thesis is to develop navigation methods including Path Planning, Location Measurement, and Path Following for supporting the navigation of wheeled mobile robots (WMR). The concept provides methods for path planning, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Crash Compatibility between Roadside Infrastructure and Passenger Vehicles: Improving the Geometric and Structural Compatibility to Reduce Fatalities

    Author : Weijia Wu; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : crash simulations.; ditches; accident analysis; crash compatibility; guardrails; roadside safety;

    Abstract : Roadside accidents cause a significant number of fatalities each year in the world. To reducethis type of accident, roadside infrastructure needs to be investigated to improve protection todifferent kinds of passenger vehicles during crashes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Motion modelling and control strategies of over-actuated vehicles

    Author : Johannes Edrén; Annika Stensson Trigell; Jenny Jerrelind; Mats Jonasson; Dongpu Cao; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : With the growing concern for environmental change and uncertain oil resources, the development of new vehicle concepts will in many cases include full or partial electric propulsion. The introduction of more advanced powertrains enables vehicles that can be controlled with a variety of electric actuators, such as wheel hub motors and individual steering. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards Optimization of Railway Turnouts

    Author : Björn Pålsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dynamic vehicle–track interaction; turnout; switch crossing; wheel and rail wear;

    Abstract : The turnout (Switch & Crossing) is a vital component in railway networks as it provides flexibility to traffic operation by allowing trains to switch between tracks. The flexibility comes at a cost as the common lack of a transition curve in the diverging route together with the variation and discontinuities in rail profiles result in higher rail degradation rates than in regular track.
