  1. 1. Integrated pedestrian safety assessment methodology

    Author : Nils Lübbe; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : assessment; driver behavior; comfort zone boundary; integrated safety; pedestrian; Forward Collision Warning; False Positive;

    Abstract : Pedestrian fatalities and injuries are a concern in many regions. Passive safety assessment is well established, and additional active safety assessment has recently emerged. However, assessment methods reflecting on the interaction between active and passive safety do not exist in regulatory or consumer testing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Circularity Assessment of Water and Waste in Cities : A Proposed Framework for Sustainable Performance Evaluation using LCA and LCC

    Author : Kavitha Shanmugam; Venkata Krishna Kumar Upadhyayula; Mats Tysklind; Runar Brännlund; Brajesh Dubey; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Urbanization is a global phenomenon, happening on a massive scale and at a rapid rate, with 68% of the planet’s population predicted to be living in cities by 2050 (UN-DESA, 2018). The sustainability of a city (Goal 11 of UN SDGs) undergoing rapid urbanization depends on its ability to maintain a low consumption of resources and materials at any given time (referred to as the urban metabolic rate), whilst simultaneously providing essential municipal services to its inhabitants, such as a water supply, wastewater treatment and solid waste management.
