EU project on gender equality and diversity in the transport sector: TInnGO

Smart mobility (e.g. new transport technologies, new mobility services) present opportunities to challenge existing inequalities and imbalances related to mobility. 



Correlating Air Freezing Index and Frost Penetration Depth: A Case Study for Sweden

The determination of frost penetration is one of the main requirements in considering environmental effects in pavement design in cold regions. At the present time, the frost depth of pavements in Sweden is estimated computationally using computer...

Simulated and real train driving in a lineside automatic train protection (ATP) system...

This is the first step exploring how capacity, signal systems, and driving behaviour interact and will be followed by investigations of the next generation signalling system ERTMS. © 2020 Elsevier Ltd This paper presents the differences between the...

Gender-related contemporary challenges in the transport ecosystem and women’s mobility...

TInnGO addresses contemporary challenges in employment, education and male-domination, through an intersectional analysis applied to examine inequality and privilege in transport and mobility. The European transport sector is marred by strong,...



ICTTP 2020

ICTTP, International Conference on Traffic and Transport Psychology, is postponed until August 2021.

Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis: European Conference 2020

VTI and Centre for Transport Studies (CTS) at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) organise Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis: European Conference 2020. 

International Cycling Safety Conference

Swedish Cycling Research Centre, Cykelcentrum, organises together with Lund University the International Cycling Safety Conference, ICSC, in Lund 4-6 November 2020.



Additional policy instruments are needed to achieve Swedish environmental quality objectives for maritime transport

Achieving the national and international environmental objectives for maritime airborne emissions requires a combination of new and more powerful policy instruments. The policies already in place are not enough. This is one of the conclusions of a research...


Opportunities for a new market in electrified regional flight

Large, electrified aircraft is far off in the future. On the other hand, there may be potential for a new market with smaller regional flights. These are the conclusions of a literature survey made by researchers at VTI.


Need for standards as electric road systems are developed

The need for standardisation is increasing as electric road systems are reaching higher levels of maturity. A large part of the standards for intelligent transport systems (ITS) assessed in a new VTI and SIS study was considered potentially useful for...


Unique knowledge compilation on microplastics from road traffic

Although we know that tyre and road surface wear generates significant emissions of microplastic particles, knowledge about them is very limited. This is the conclusion of a report issued by the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI).


Measures for infrastructure climate adaptation requires prioritisation

The effect of climate change will result in more extreme weather events causing for example increased risk of floods, and landslides, which will result in great costs to society. Therefore, society needs to prepare for the consequences brought on by climate...


Increased interest in train simulators

VTI has developed a train simulator that has become a valued tool in train driver education and research on how simulators can be used to improve railway technology.
