  1. 1. A model for simulation and generation of surrounding vehicles in driving simulators

    Author : Johan Olstam; Jan Lundgren; Pontus Matstoms; Stéphane Espié; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Traffic; Simulation; Model; Traffic flow; Vehicle; Micro; Overtaking; Vehicle spacing; Deceleration; Acceleration; Mathematical model; Simulator; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory; Technology; Traffic Simulation; Driving Simulator; Traffic Generation; Microscopic; Traffic models; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Driving simulators are used to conduct experiments on for example driver behavior, road design, and vehicle characteristics. The results of the experiments often depend on the traffic conditions. One example is the evaluation of cellular phones and how they affect driving behavior. READ MORE

  4. 4. Controlling over-actuated road vehicles during failure conditions

    Author : Daniel Wanner; Annika Stensson Trigell; Lars Drugge; Mats Jonasson; Jochen Rauh; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vehicle dynamics; vehicle safety; driver-vehicle interaction; failure analysis; wheel hub motor failure; over-actuation; fault-tolerant control; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : The aim of electrification of chassis and driveline systems in road vehicles is to reduce the global emissions and their impact on the environment. The electrification of such systems in vehicles is enabling a whole new set of functionalities improving safety, handling and comfort for the user. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vehicle-related injuries : with emphasis on fatality prevention

    Author : Mats Öström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fatalities; injury; prevention; traffic; disease; alcohol; helmet; airbag;

    Abstract : According to WHO, Sweden should aim to reduce unintentional fatalities, particularly vehicle-related injuries, by 25% by the year 2000. The aim of this thesis was to analyze vehicle-related injuries and injury events, especially the contributory effects of alcohol and disease and the injury reducing capacity of helmets and airbags in order to point out some preventive measures.
