  1. 1. Driver-centred Motion Control of Heavy Trucks

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Kristoffer K D Tagesson; [2017]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Driver behaviour; active safety; torque feedback; heavy trucks; motion coordination; steering by braking; oncoming collision; electronic stability control; active steering;

    Sammanfattning : Traffic accidents constitute one of the leading global causes of death. Deadly traffic accidents occur, even in countries that have implemented far-reaching countermeasures, at a rate that cannot be tolerated. Improved safety of heavy trucks is an important remedy, as these vehicles are involved in a large part of all fatal accidents. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Vehicle Dynamics Control for Active Safety Functions using Electrified Drivelines

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Adithya Arikere; [2018]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; driver assistance systems; intersection accidents; torque vectoring; optimal control; rear- end collisions; speed control; active safety; vehicle dynamics; electrified drivetrain; obstacle avoidance with oncoming traffic;

    Sammanfattning : Studies have shown that even considering pledges and commitments made by various governments and organisations, the growth in electrified vehicle sales is likely to be insufficient to reduce CO2 emissions for mitigating global warming. Some form of added incentive is needed that can help drive electrified vehicle sales in the open market. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Understanding and modelling car drivers overtaking cyclists: Toward the inclusion of driver models in virtual safety assessment of advanced driving assistance systems

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Jordanka Kovaceva; [2019]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; traffic safety; overtaking manoeuvres; cyclist; naturalistic data; safety benefit;

    Sammanfattning : The total number of road crashes in Europe is decreasing, but the number of crashes involving cyclists is not decreasing at the same rate. To help car drivers avoid or mitigate crashes while overtaking a cyclist, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have been developed. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Integration of car and road infrastructure design : crash severity and occupant injury risk evaluations in frontal real-world crashes

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Författare :Anders Ydenius; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : During the last decade, traffic safety has not only been a matter of vehicle crashworthiness but an increasing interest can also be observed in the integration between vehicle and road infrastructure design. Research projects with a focus on merging these areas are however in their infancy. LÄS MER
