Automatisk hastighetsövervakning: hastighetsförlopp före och efter montering av kameraskåp på E4 mellan Iggesund och Hudiksvall

On behalf of Central Directorate of National Road Administration, VTI has described the speed profile between Iggesund and Hudiksvall before and after the installation of seven camera boxes for automatic speed enforcement. The boxes can be equipped with cameras, which take a front photo if the approaching car is driven with a speed exceeding the speed limit with 10 km/h.

The measurement method means that about 30 randomly selected cars have been followed in each direction by an instrumented car from VTI. The instrument in the car continuously registered the distance to the followed car and the speed of the instrumented car. Hereby the speed profile of the followed car is received for the road section. For every 50 meter of the road section the mean value for all followed cars is calculated and an aggregated speed profile is received.

The speed measurements verify that the mean speed on the experimental section decreased 6 to 7 km/h from June 1998 to June 1999. From June 1998 to June 2000 the mean speed decreasd with 4 to 5 km/h. At the same time decreased the speed variation. The use of the cameras has been very limited and on the same level during 1999 and 2000.

Simulation of cut-in by manually driven vehicles in platooning scenarios

A study in a VTI-driving simulator has showed that a platoon will be able to handle a cut in from a manually driven car. The results of this study have recently been presented at two conferences in Japan.



The five-year anniversary of European Road Profile Users' Group (ERPUG) Forum will take place at Ramboll head quarter, Copenhagen, Denmark October 19-20, 2017.

New climate-proof solutions for hard surfaces in cities

High-density road infrastructure that emphasise maximum durability and minimum maintenance create inflexible systems, which put increased stress on urban trees and lead to increased risk for flooding. Over the past five years, the ‘Climate-proof solutions for...


VTI is preparing for automated vehicles

Automation of traffic systems will lead to major changes. The European Union’s (EU) CoEXist research project began in June 2017 with the aim of preparing cities and road operators for the introduction of self-driving vehicles. The Swedish National Road and...


Vehicle Driver Monitoring: sleepiness and cognitive load

To prevent road crashes it is important to understand driver related contributing factors, which have been suggested to be the critical reason in 94 per cent of crashes. The overall aim of the project Vehicle Driver Monitoring has been to advance the...
