Rail simulator

With decades of experience VTI is world leading in developing and using driving simulators. At the moment three driving simulators are in use in different research projects concerning cars and lorries. The same technique as in VTI:s driving simulators can be applied in the rail area. VTI has developed a rail simulator that can simulate a train driver's work environment. The simulator can be built as a complex solution with a cabin as well as desktop or lap-top installation, depending on the planned usage.

Reduced Attention Allocation during Short Periods of Partially Automated Driving: An...

Research on partially automated driving has revealed relevant problems with driving performance, particularly when drivers' intervention is required (e.g., take-over when automation fails). Mental fatigue has commonly been proposed to explain these...

A Generalized Method to Extract Visual Time-Sharing Sequences From Naturalistic Driving...

Indicators based on visual time-sharing have been used to investigate drivers' visual behaviour during additional task execution. However, visual time-sharing analyses have been restricted to additional tasks with well-defined temporal start and end...

Comprehensive study of the performance of winter tires on ice, snow, and asphalt roads:...

This work presents a comprehensive study of the performance of winter tires on snow, ice, and asphalt. A set of 77 different winter tires were carefully selected for the study. Of these, 27 were new and 50 were worn from real traffic use. All three...
