Electric roads of the future tested in simulator

Transport that depends on fossil fuels is to be minimised by the year 2030. One conceivable alternative is for future cars to be powered by electricity supplied via the roadway. Working together with the Swedish Transport Administration and Viktoria Swedish ICT, VTI is launching a comprehensive research project to test electrified roads in a driving simulator.


Uppföljning av vägars tekniska tillstånd: lägesrapport för observationssträckor ingående...

The objective of this project is to collect and deliver high quality road data primarily for use in the development of performance prediction models. Monitoring of the LTPP (Long Term Pavement Performance) sections (100-metre-long) started in 1984...

Shared space: utifrån olika åldersgruppers perspektiv

A shared space, in the context of road transport, often refers to an area that is shared by unprotected and protected road users and is intended to facilitate a living city space for everyone. The purpose of this study was to investigate how young,...

Freight train model for real-time simulation

In an attempt to increase the freight transport capacity in Sweden, introduction of longer and heavier trains is investigated. To aid this investigation, a freight train simulator was designed and constructed. Here, the implemented freight train...

VTI contributes to study on older drivers and accidents

On behalf of and in collaboration with the Swedish Transport Agency, VTI has carried out a study of older drivers and the link between illness and traffic accidents. The Transport Agency has now published the results.


VTI in research programme Triple F (Fossil Free Freight)

VTI is part of the consortium that has been commissioned by the Swedish Transport Administration to conduct a research programme with focus on fossil-free freight transports. The programme, called Triple F, will run for 12 years. Part of the programme is...


Several actors collaborating on HCT vehicles

The increasing amount of freight, congestion on the roads and environmental emissions are problems that high capacity vehicles, HCT vehicles, can contribute to solving.


VTI’s simulators are being used for emergency vehicles

Better accessibility and shorter response times for emergency vehicles – this is something that standardised, directed, traffic messages, transmitted over the 5G network can contribute. Within the EU project Nordic Way 2, a functioning prototype of such a...


Modal shift - a way to achieve the environmental objectives

Shifting freight transports from road to rail and water can contribute to achieving the Swedish environmental and climate objectives by 2030. How this could be done is something that VTI researchers and researchers from Gothenburg University are investigating...


Report regarding government commission on the costs of traffic to society has been submitted

Since 2013, the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) has had several government commissions to produce documentation on the costs to society caused by traffic. On 1 November 2018, the agency reported its latest commission, Samkost 3....
