This report sums up the activities performed during the complete duration of the project from January 2008 until December 2010. Following the motivation for testing and evaluation of active safety functions, the technical development within the project is described. This includes the derivation of relevant traffic scenarios, a collection of potential test approaches as well as the proposed testing protocols and a collection of experiences made during the application of the protocols. Besides the results of the project, open issues and weaknesses in connection with future research need are discussed herein. Furthermore, links to existing initiatives and projects in the same domain are described. An important part is also the documentation of a critical debate about the results of the project that was held during the final demonstration event. Representatives of all relevant stakeholders including the automotive industry, governing and legislative institutions as well as research and academia discussed and commented the achievements, thus giving important input for future research and other initiatives.

Self-driving buses in Sweden next year?

A self-driving, fossil-free bus. This idea might become reality through a forthcoming collaborative project involving the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI), Linköping University and several other participants. The project group aim...


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...
