High speed control of long combination heavy commercial vehicles within safe corridors

The main scope of the project was to initiate a technical framework for studying manual and automated high-speed driving of long vehicle combinations (LVCs) in a driving simulator environment.The project included implementation and evaluation of...

Performance based standards for high capacity transports in Sweden: FIFFI project...

Projektet “Performance Based Standards for High Capacity Transports in Sweden” startade i slutet av 2013 för att undersöka möjligheterna att applicera prestandabaserade kriterier, eller Performance Based Standards (PBS), i Sverige. Vid...

Evaluation of a Run-off-Road Scenario for Driving Simulators used for the Assessment of...

The setup of a run-off-road scenario was based on the current knowledge about critical run-off-road situations and accidents. The scenario was initiated by a visual secondary task. During the task, an added clockwise yaw deviation, intended to...

A Lane-Change Gap Acceptance Scenario Developed for Heavy Vehicle Active Safety...

The aims of this study were to develop a lane-change scenario for driving simulators in order to analyse the characteristics of lane-change manoeuvres performed with heavy vehicles. The scenario was set up based on information from lane-change...

Drivers’ Assessment of Driving a 32 Meter A-double with and without full automation in a...

In situations where LongCombination Vehicles can be challenging to maneuver, drivers could be supportedthrough automated driving systems. A safe way to assess prototypes of suchsystems is to take advantage of driving simulators. This study assessed...

Traffic safety of Heavy Goods Vehicles and implications for High Capacity Transport...

The paper summarizes the results of the programme "Traffic safety effects of High Capacity Transport (HCT) vehicles and suggestions for compensatory measures" this far. An analysis of ten years of Swedish accident data shows that "long" combinations...

Design and performance of the VTI Sim IV

The VTI simulator IV (Sim IV) is the fourth advanced driving simulator designed and built at The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI). The simulator, taken into operation 2011, has an 8 degrees of freedom (DoF) moving base, a...

EDR Pre-Crash Data: Potential For Applications In Active Safety Testing

Passive safety testing has been based on accident research where objective physical evidence can be compiled and analysed when establishing technical test requirements. Active safety tests pose new challenges because objective data is more difficult...

Trafiksäkerhetseffekter vid införande av längre och tyngre fordon: en kunskapsöversikt

This review concerns potential traffic safety effects from the introduction of longer and heavier trucks than those currently allowed in Sweden. For this purpose, a summary of results from accident studies, literature summaries and in-depth studies...

Traffic safety effects when overtaking 30 meter trucks

The purpose of this paper is to investigate if the introduction of extra-long and heavy trucks has an effect on traffic safety on Swedish roads, especially in relation to overtaking maneuvers. Traffic safety effects will be measured in terms of road...

The effect on passenger cars’ meeting margins when overtaking 30 meter trucks on real...

The purpose was to study the effect of vehicle length on meeting margins during overtaking maneuvers. A field study video-recorded overtaking maneuvers of a 30 m and a 24 m truck on a two-lane road. The difference in average meeting margins between...

Trafiksäkerhetspåverkan vid omkörning av 30-metersfordon

Trafikverket överväger att tillåta längre och tyngre fordon på vägarna förutsatt att de inte påverkar trafiksäkerheten negativt. Syftet med studien var att undersöka säkerhetseffekten av fordonslängd, speciellt med avseende på olycksrisken vid...

Regulation knowledge presentation

The ASSET-Road project is focussing on improving road safety and road traffic by pushing different transportation stakeholders to interact between each other and integrating modern communication and sensing technologies. This deliverable is the...
