  1. 1. Diffusion of Battery Electric Vehicles : The Role of Total Cost of Ownership

    Author : Jens Hagman; Sofia Ritzèn; Johan Jansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Total cost of ownership; electric vehicles; e-taxis; vehicle salespeople; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : Due to their high efficiency, zero tailpipe emissions and possibilities of using renewable electricity, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) have been proposed as a way to alleviate the negative consequences of transport. However, as with other energy-efficient innovations market uptake or diffusion of BEVs have so far been limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transportation Mission Based Optimization of Heavy Vehicle Fleets including Propulsion Tailoring

    Author : Toheed Ghandriz; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optimization; heterogeneous heavy vehicle fleet; optimal energy management; propulsion system tailoring; Automated Driving Systems; electrified propulsion; total cost of ownership; electromobility; transportation mission; fleet sizing;

    Abstract : Over decades freight vehicles were produced for a wide range of operational domains so that vehicle-manufacturers were not concerned much about the actual use-cases of the vehicles. Environmental issues, costumer expectations along with growing demand on freight transport created a competitive environment in providing better transportation solutions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Transportation Mission-Based Optimization of Heavy Combination Road Vehicles and Distributed Propulsion, Including Predictive Energy and Motion Control

    Author : Toheed Ghandriz; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heterogeneous heavy vehicle fleet; optimization; automation; propulsion system tailoring; motion control; fleet sizing; automated driving systems; optimal energy management; predictive energy management and vehicle stability; longer heavier vehicles; total cost of ownership; long combination vehicles; vehicle stability; transportation mission; optimal control; electrified propulsion; electromobility; single-track and two-track vehicle models;

    Abstract : This thesis proposes methodologies to improve heavy vehicle design by reducing the total cost of ownership and by increasing energy efficiency and safety. Environmental issues, consumers expectations and the growing demand for freight transport have created a competitive environment in providing better transportation solutions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Agile, Resilient and Cost-efficient Mobile Backhaul Networks : Fundamentals of Network Design and Adaptation

    Author : Forough Yaghoubi; Marija Furdek; Lena Wosinska; Dipak Ghosal; KTH; []
    Keywords : 5G; topology design and control; software defined networking; rain disturbance; techno-economic framework; network consistency.; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : The exponentially increasing traffic demand for mobile services requires innovative solutions in both access and backhaul segments of 5th generation (5G) mobile networks. Whilst substantial research efforts address the access segment, the backhaul part has received less attention and still falls short in meeting the stringent requirements of 5G in terms of capacity and availability.

  5. 5. Driverless trucks in the Swedish freight transport system : An analysis of future impacts on the transport system and the emerging innovation system

    Author : Albin Engholm; Anna Pernestål; Ida Kristoffersson; Maria Oscott; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Driverless Trucks; Automated Driving; Total Cost of Ownership; Freight Transport Modeling; Innovation Systems; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : A large-scale introduction of driverless trucks could start taking place during the next decade. While this could bring several economic benefits for freight transport actors and society, it may also change the freight transport system and exacerbate the negative effects of road transport.
