Bicycling has become a popular way to commute in Iceland, as well as a way to exercise and enjoy the outdoors. Due to the broad group of cyclists, in terms of age composition and bicycle use, it can be tricky to identify the main problems this group of road users is facing. This article summarizes...
A case study from The Swedish National Road and Transport Research institute (VTI) presents a social perspective on new vehicle technology. It explores the self-reported preparedness of the fire departments (i.e., rescue services) and municipal officials’ in Sweden’s three largest cities...
Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles provide substantial environmental advantages compared with comparable Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles. Two Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles energy consumption, CO2-emission and locally polluting emissions were tested in VTT’s emission laboratory in Finland, at +23°C and...
Modern gasoline-fueled personal cars with direct-injection technology exhibiting high emissions of nitrogen oxides in new laboratory tests. Researchers at Institute of Transport Economics in Norway (TØI) and VTT in Finland have tested various vehicles by applying test-cycles which represent...
A new study from the National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) demonstrates that older types of trains produce more particulate emissions in railroad tunnels than do newer ones. Dust binding, improved paving, and reduced studded tyre use could reduce coarse particle levels in road...
According to earlier research, rollovers are a type of accident that often has severe consequences for ATV drivers. A recently published VTI study demonstrates that an active driving style is needed to drive an ATV safely, but that the requisite training is currently lacking. Researchers at...
