Transport Summit DTU 2019

2019-06-04 00:00 – 2019-06-04 00:00

Transport Summit DTU 2019 is a one day conference about transports held at Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby.

Maria Börjesson, professor in Transport Economics at VTI, will make a presentation on the theme "It's the economy, stupid! Achieving our goals or missing our target – and the power of fact-based decision support".

VTI will also have a manned poster exhibition about TRA VISIONS 2020. TRA VISIONS 2020 is a competition which invites young and senior transport researchers from all over Europe to submit innovative transport concepts. The competition is organized on behalf of the European Commission and VTI is one of the co-organizers.



Modelling the flow of asphalt under simulated compaction using discrete element

The flow differences between the particles of asphalt mixtures compacted in the laboratory and in the field have been identified as one of the reasons for the discrepancies between laboratory and field results. In previous studies, the authors...

Speed perception affected by field of view: Energy-based versus rhythm-based processing

Two experiments were carried out to test speed perception dependency on field of view (FoV), virtual road markings (VRMs), and presentation orders. The primary purpose was to examine how the extent of the optic flow (foremost...

A driving licence withdrawal can have major consequences in everyday life

A withdrawn driving licence can have negative consequences for a person’s ability to shape their own life. A study from VTI investigates how individuals with visual field loss have been affected by no longer being permitted to drive.


Measuring sleepiness – a challenge for researchers

Driver fatigue has been a research area at VTI for several years, and the researchers have studied various aspects such as the working hours of professional drivers, driver behaviour, accident risks, and the design of warning systems. They are now moving...


Knowledge in the fight against microplastics from road traffic

The Government has commissioned VTI to develop and disseminate knowledge regarding the emission of microplastics from road traffic.


How to make autonomous vehicles coexist with other traffic

The road infrastructure must be prepared for self-driving vehicles – especially in the beginning when the concepts are still new. Researchers are contributing to this through CoEXist, an EU-funded research project in which VTI participates as the largest...


Electric roads: ‘Standardisation is an important factor for a future European transport system’

VTI employees recently arranged a workshop in Brussels on the standardisation of Electric Road Systems (ERS). ERS has become increasingly relevant as a possible method for reducing the transport sector's environmental impacts, especially in terms of climate...


Research on passenger and freight transport research

Shift2Rail is a European railway project that works actively to create innovations within the railway sector. IMPACT-2 is a project within Shift2Rail that follows and evaluates the innovation projects. How are the innovations coming along? Are they beneficial...
