  1. 1. Driving Violations : Investigating Forms of Irrational Rationality

    Author : Sonja Forward; Lars Åberg; Dianne Parker; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; theory of planned behaviour; driving violations; risk-taking; speeding; dangerous overtaking; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Several aspects contribute to road crashes and one important part is the ‘human factor’. This information is interesting but insufficient unless we also try to understand what is meant by the term. READ MORE

  2. 2. Driving assessment and driving behaviour

    Author : Helena Selander; Torbjörn Falkmer; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : IntroductionDriving is an important part of everyday life and represents independence. Activities, both productive and social, may be affected if a person can no longer drive. Older drivers, as a group, have a low crash rate. READ MORE

  3. 3. Safe Transitions to Manual Driving From Faulty Automated Driving System

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Driver takeover; functional safety; automated driving; safety; vehicle automation; driver capability; brake failure; controllability; driving simulator.;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a method to assess the safety of transitions from automated to manual driving when vehicle automation fails. The method is based on contributions to the understanding of human driving behavior, also presented in this thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Traffic Situation Management for Driving Automation of Articulated Heavy Road Transports - From driver behaviour towards highway autopilot

    Author : Peter Nilsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; driver model; driving simulator; driving principles; driving automation; vehicle model; articulated heavy-vehicles; vehicle dynamics; long combination vehicles;

    Abstract : In this thesis traffic situation management for driving automation of long combination vehicles is discussed. The automation targets high-speed driving in multiple-lane, one-way roads. Traffic situation predictions, traffic situation manoeuvres and driving principles are studied specifically. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards Increased Energy Efficiency in Swedish Industry : Barriers, Driving Forces & Policies

    Author : Patrik Thollander; Mats Söderström; Magnus Karlsson; Jenny Palm; Paolo Bertoldi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Industrial energy efficiency; barriers; driving forces; investment decision support; energy policies; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Industrial energy efficiency is one of the most important means of reducing the threat of increased global warming. A higheruse of electricity than their European competitors, together with increased energy costs due to increasing energy prices in Swedish industry have negative impacts on results and competitiveness.
