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

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Peter Nilsson; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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

  2. 2. Lifelong Visual Localization for Automated Vehicles

    University dissertation from Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Author : Peter Mühlfellner; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vision-based localization; automated vehicles;

    Abstract : Automated driving can help solve the current and future problems of individualtransportation. Automated valet parking is a possible approach to help with overcrowded parking areas in cities and make electric vehicles more appealing. In an automated valet system, drivers are able to drop off their vehicle close to a parking area. READ MORE

  3. 3. Steering Based Lateral Performance Control of Long Heavy Vehicle Combinations

    University dissertation from Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Author : Sogol Kharrazi; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Trailer Swing; Active Steering; Offtracking; Heavy Vehicle; Lateral Performance; Sine with Dwell; Accident Analysis; Longer Combination Vehicle; Rearward Amplification;

    Abstract : In this thesis the lateral performance of heavy vehicle combinations, specifically longer combination vehicles, is discussed. The use of longer combination vehicles is promoted by their positive impact on the traffic congestion problem, as well as their economic and environmental benefits due to reduced fuel consumption and emissions.

  4. 4. Enabling socio-technical transitions – electric vehicles and high voltage electricity grids as focal points of low emission futures

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Martin Albrecht; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Socio-technical system; innovation system; transition; MLP; TIS; low emission future; electric vehicles; high voltage transmission grid; Sweden; Norway; Denmark; Finland; United Kingdom; Planering och beslutsanalys; Planning and Decision Analysis;

    Abstract : Today humankind is facing numerous sustainability challenges that require us to question CO2 intensive practices like those present in the transport and energy sector. To meet those challenges, many countries have adopted ambitious climate targets. Achieving such targets requires an understanding of the wider socio-technical context of transitions. READ MORE

  5. 5. On Energy Management Strategies for Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Lars Johannesson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hybrid Electric Vehicle; Energy Management; Vehicle Telematics; Powertrain Control; Stochastic Dynamic Programming; Driver Model; Predictive Control; Hybrid Vehicle;

    Abstract : Hybrid electric vehicles are characterized by the existence of an electric energy buffer in the powertrain. Compared to a conventional vehicle the existence of the buffer means an extra degree of freedom in the powertrain. READ MORE
