Jämförelse av flöde och hastigheter från två olika cykelmätningsutrustningar

Josef Danial

The purpose of this study was to compare cycle flows and speeds from two different cycle measurement equipment. The result has also been compared with the processed video data and manual counts. The measuring equipment are Viscando’s equipment OTUS3D and VTI´s TA-89. OTUS3D is a camera with 3D functionality, and it detects tracks and classifies these into different road user categories. TA-89 (where TA stands for Traffic Analyzer) is developed by VTI and is adapted for detecting both bicycles and motor vehicles. We also used a video camera from the OTUS3D system, to enable a manual calculation.

The test site for the study is a pedestrian and bicycle path that crosses a ridge in Vallaskogen in Linköping. The area is located between the district of East Valla and campus. It is a fairly steep slope where the direction towards the campus is uphill and the direction to the East Valla / city center is downhill. Five days that did not include losses of flow were selected for the analyzes. The selected periods were 3 to 4 September (Saturday and Sunday) and 6 to 8 September (Tuesday to Thursday). In addition to this, we chose an hour with high flow and an hour with low flow where video processing was conducted. Furthermore, we used an hour and 50 minutes of manual counting.



Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) workshop in Stockholm

An open seminar and workshop in Stockholm will be held on 25-26 April 2018. The workshop deals with the use of CBA as a basis for decision-making in the public sector. The workshop is organized by, among others, Professor Jan-Eric Nilsson, VTI.



Modal shift for an environmental lift?

Investigations in Sweden and other countries suggest a shift of goods transport from road to rail and waterborne transport to reach environmental and climate objectives. VTI is leading a new project to investigate how the modal shift can contribute and what...


Automation and digitalisation are making rail competitive

Road transport is developing rapidly and its productivity has increased sharply. Rail transport, however, has not developed at the same rate. Automation and digitalisation are essential if rail freight in Europe is to survive.


New research is creating a driverless logistics chain

The research project Born to Drive has come up with a system that allows new cars to move, without a driver, from the production line out to the parking area prior to being transported elsewhere. The vision is to automate the entire logistics chain from...


VTI testing automation in EU project

VTI is leading a series of tests in a major EU project on automated driving. The first driving tests were carried out n a test track in Slovenia in December. The project will focus in part on acceptance among different groups in society, in part on...


Freight transportation on road and rail analysed

Freight transport accounts for a large proportion of the emissions, noise and congestion produced by road traffic. Transporting freight in larger but fewer lorries could reduce the problem. At the same time it might entail freight being diverted from more...


Millions for research into maritime transport and the environment

Maritime transport is a major source of emissions of harmful air pollutants and carbon dioxide. In a new project, a research team from the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) and the University of Gothenburg has received SEK 6.4...
