  1. 1. Explaining Trends in Car Use

    Author : Anne Bastian; Maria Börjesson; Jonas Eliasson; Oded Cats; Patricia Mokhtarian; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; car use; peak car; VMT; VKT; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Many western countries have seen a plateau and subsequent decline in car travel during the early 21st century. What has generated particular interest and debate is the claim that the development cannot only be explained by changes in traditional explanatory factors such as GDP, fuel prices and land-use.

  2. 2. Aspects of Modeling Fraud Prevention of Online Financial Services

    Author : Gorton Dan; Lars-Göran Mattsson; Simin Nadjm-Tehrani; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Online banking; fraud; incident response; metrics; incident response tree IRT ; value at risk VaR ; simulation; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Banking and online financial services are part of our critical infrastructure. As such, they comprise an Achilles heel in society and need to be protected accordingly. The last ten years have seen a steady shift from traditional show-off hacking towards cybercrime with great economic consequences for society. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation and Modelling of Short Haul Intermodal Transport Systems

    Author : Behzad Kordnejad; Sebastian Stichel; Bo-Lennart Nelldal; Sebastiaan Meijer; Johan Woxenius; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Conventional intermodal rail freight transport systems have proved themselves competitive and able to offer cost-leadership on long distances and in endpoint relations between two nodes. Several studies within intermodal transports have made contributions in finding the minimum distance, the “break-even” distance that an intermodal door-to-door shipment can compete with unimodal road.

    Abstract : When a new transport service is introduced, people have to learn and familiarize themselves with the new service before they decide to adopt it. These processes are developed over time, thus produce dynamics in individuals’ behavioural responses towards the service. This affects the demand of the new service, thus affect revenues. READ MORE
