  1. 1. Teleoperation and the influence of driving feedback on drivers’ behaviour and experience

    Author : Lin Zhao; Mikael Nybacka; Malte Rothhämel; Jonas Mårtensson; Jonas Andersson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teleoperation; driving behaviour; driving feedback; driving performance; driving experience; motion cueing feedback; steering force feedback; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : Automated vehicles (AVs) have been developing at a rapid pace over the past few years. However, many difficulties still remain for achieving full Level-5 AVs. This signifies that AVs still require human operators to intervene or assist, such as taking over control of AVs or selecting their routes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Longitudinal Force Distribution and Road Vehicle Handling

    Author : Matthijs Klomp; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ehicle dynamics; quasi steady-state; drive force; combined grip; longitudinal force distribution; combined slip; vehicle handling; optimization;

    Abstract : The distribution of longitudinal forces has a large influence on vehicle handling characteristics such as the driver/vehicle interaction, road holding and yaw stability, in particular during combined traction/braking and cornering near the grip limit of the tires. In order to select and develop suitable driveline systems and associated active control that provide consistent driver/vehicle handling, maximum road holding and sufficient yaw stability margins, it is essential to understand the influence of a particular drive force distribution on these handling characteristics.

    Abstract : The EU has since 2003 carried out six military operations.  This thesis seeks to determine the circumstances under which the EU will, or will not, undertake military operations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Unsteady aerodynamic effects on the driving stability of passenger vehicles

    Author : Adam Brandt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aerodynamics; wake dynamics; high speed; Vehicle dynamics; driving stability; crosswinds;

    Abstract : The passenger car is a vital part of modern society, giving people the freedom of flexible travel. As technology advances, customers increase their demand for future products. The automotive industry must therefore adapt to society's requirements for energy-efficient travel, where developing low-drag vehicles is key. READ MORE
