    Sammanfattning : This dissertation is about sound in context. Since sensory processing is inherently multimodal, research in sound is necessarily multidisciplinary. The present work has been guided by principles of systematicity, ecological validity, complementarity of  methods, and integration of science and art. LÄS MER

  2. 2. A Needs-Based Approach towards Fostering Long-term Engagement with Energy Feedback among Local Residents

    Författare :Aram Mäkivierikko; Fredrik Gröndahl; Olga Kordas; Hossein Shahrokni; Paula M. Bögel; Cristian M Bogdan; KTH; []

    Sammanfattning : In order to reach the current climate goals, energy consumption needs to decrease in all sectors, including households, which produce 20% of the European emissions. However, it is difficult to increase residents’ engagement in their household electricity consumption as it is an ‘invisible’ form of energy, the monetary incentives are often too small and environmental incentives are not very effective.

  3. 3. Cognitive performance and restoration in open-plan office noise

    Författare :Helena Jahncke; Staffan Hygge; Mats Nilsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Engineering Psychology; Teknisk psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation presents four experimental studies (in four papers) with the overall aim to investigate the effects of office noise on cognitive performance and restoration. In the first two papers the focus was on the effects of different sound levels (i.e. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The development of methods for detection and assessment of safety critical events in car driving

    Författare :Omar Bagdadi; Andras Varhelyi; Nicolas Saunier; Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut; []

    Sammanfattning : Improving our knowledge of drivers’ behaviour, especially in hazardous situations is a key to understanding why accidents occur and how to improve safety on our roads. Crash surrogate measures have proven to be very useful in traffic safety analysis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Lighting Control Systems for Energy Saving and User Acceptance: State-of-the-art and future directions

    Författare :Niko Gentile; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []

    Sammanfattning : Lighting accounts for one-fifth of global electricity use. In Sweden, energy demand for lighting corresponds to 20% of the total electricity use in office buildings. Lighting retrofit measures are considered to be among the most cost-efficient way to reduce energy use in buildings. LÄS MER
