    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Much has been researched and written about road pricing, and especially how it affects traffic flow, congestion, the environment, and social welfare in general. This doctoral thesis analyses the implementation of road user charges rather than its effects. The dissertation consists of five separate papers, each addressing a subset of the topic. READ MORE

  3. 3. Light Design : Outdoor Urban Public Places - Urban Lighting: Design and Technologies -

    University dissertation from STOCKHOLM : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : José Nuno Sampaio; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Light-based Technologies and Design; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Most of the present time outdoor lighting investments seem to be focused on road and automotive traffic facilities or oriented toward safety, security and efficiency. We can identify this in many of the world cities, as a globally spread common practice, where lighting is still highly perceived as a pure matter of quantities’ distribution.
