Driving restrictions post-stroke

Objective: Suffering a stroke might lead to permanent cognitive and/or physical impairment. It has been shown that these impairments could have an impact on an individual's fitness to drive. In Sweden, as in many other countries, there are...

Identifying factors for traffic safety support in older drivers

The present study aimed at identifying factors for traffic safety support in older drivers. This was achieved by studying the co-operation between older drivers and their ordinary front seat passenger (co-driver). The knowledge emerging from such...

Interior tunnel design and road traffic safety

Maintaining high levels of road traffic safety is always important and when the road is in a tunnel, and especially in a long tunnel, maintaining the highest possible level of safety is paramount. In Sweden, the Stockholm Bypass tunnel (FFS), has...

Elvägar i körsimulator

Elvägar, där el överförs kontinuerligt till fordon på vägen, kan vara ett sätt att nå målet om en fossiloberoende transportsektor. För att testa och utvärdera elvägar och elfordon på elvägar i ett tidigt stadium utvecklades en demonstrationsmiljö i...

Landscape heritage objects' effect on driving

According to the literature, landscape (panoramas, heritage objects e.g. landmarks) affects people in various ways. Data are primarily developed by asking people (interviews, photo sessions, focus groups) about their preferences, but to a lesser...

Stockholm bypass tunnel – merging traffic study

The Stockholm bypass (Förbifart Stockholm) project is a new road project that will create a bypass of central Stockholm. The entire project includes motorways, bridges and two tunnels, one of which will be 16.5 km. The Stockholm bypass is the...

A longitudinal study of semantic memory impairment in patients with Alzheimer’s disease

The present study explored the nature of the semantic deterioration normally displayed in the course of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The aim was to disentangle the extent to which semantic memory problems in patients with AD are best characterized as...

Aspects of awareness in patients with Alzheimer's disease

Background: The purpose of the present study was to gain insight into Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients' perception of the world through the study of a few aspects of awareness. The aspects in focus of the study were disease awareness,...

Weak central coherence in patients with Alzheimer’s disease

Central coherence refers to the ability to interpret details of information into a whole. To date, the concept of central coherence is mainly used in research of autism, Asperger’s syndrome and recently in the research on eating disorders. The main...

Crash Barriers and Driver Behavior

Objective: The study examines how drivers experience a conventional W-beam guardrail (metal crash barrier) along both sides of narrow versus wider roads (single carriageway with 2 lanes) in terms of stress, feelings, and driving patterns and whether...

Kognitiv erosion och dess betydelse vid Alzheimers sjukdom

Föreliggande avhandling hade två huvudsyften; dels att kartlägga försämringen av semantiskt minne hos Alzheimerpatienter över tid; dels att ta patientens perspektiv och skapa en mångfacetterad bild av individen med Alzheimers sjukdom. Fyra begrepp...

Interior Tunnel Design and Traffic Safety Aspects

Maintaining high levels of road traffic safety is always important and when the road is in a tunnel, and especially in a long tunnel, maintaining the highest possible level of safety is paramount. In Sweden, the Stockholm Bypass tunnel (FFS), has...

Förbifart Stockholm

Förbifart Stockholm är en ny vägförbindelse i form av en tunnel som väntas byggas väster om Stockholm. Tunneln kommer att bli drygt 18 kilometer lång och den inre utsmyckningen väntas ha betydelse vad gäller upplevd trötthet, stimulans, distraktion...

An algorithm for combining autonomous vehicles and controlled events in driving simulator...

Autonomous vehicles can be used to create realistic simulations of surrounding vehicles in driving simulators. However, the use of autonomous vehicles makes it difficult to ensure reproducibility between subjects. In this paper, an effort is made to...

A test method for evaluating safety aspects of ESC equipped passenger cars

Active safety systems are becoming increasingly common in today's vehicles. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems were introduced during the end of the 1990s, and accident statistics show that they have had a huge impact on traffic safety. In...

Äldre bilförare i Norge och Sverige –

I det här projektet identifieras riskfyllda situationer för äldre bilförare och analyseras äldre förares olycksinblandning samt deras visuella beteende i komplexa trafiksituationer. Projektet använder huvudsakligen tre metoder: 1) en grundlig analys...

Methods for the evaluation of traffic safety effects of Antilock Braking System (ABS) and...

In today's vehicles, active safety systems are introduced addressing a large variety of safety issues such as providing optimal stability control, braking effect, preventing spin and rollover, as well as collision avoidance, to mention just a few....

Äldre i transportsystemet

Generally, more elderly will be travelling and be out on the roads as active road-users in the future. Research exists on the travelling habits of the elderly; but more in-depth knowledge on the elderly's preferences as license-holders, drivers,...

På Vägverkets uppdrag har projektet Bussförares arbetsmiljö genomförts vid VTI, Linköping.Syftet med projektet var ”...att ta fram en uppdaterad beskrivning av bussförares arbetssituation speciellt med avseende på fordonsutformningen.” Den...

Utformning av väg och vägyta för säkerhet, komfort och hälsa

During summer 2002 a special directive about employees' health and security at exposure to risks due to vibrations during work, also called "Physical agents vibration directive" (Directive 2002/44/EC), was adopted by the EC. The member states had...

Emotion and recollective experience in Alzheimer’s disease

Emotional changes are common in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). In addition, damage to brain regions involved in emotion is abundant in AD. Although these finding imply that emotion memory is severely compromised in AD, absolute or relative sparing of...
