Moderately-high levels of carbon dioxide, which can often occur in vehicles, can adversely affect people. What effects different carbon dioxide levels can have on health status and driving performance, VTI researchers are now investigating with the help of one of the institute's driving...
The combination of bicycle and public transport has the potential to reduce car use in regional commuting. To accelerate this development, CYNKA has started a research and innovation project led by VTI. The study has attracted interest from various actors, which is also evident in the large...
Unexpected and abrupt stops of the shuttles, other road users dangerously overtaking or not giving way to the shuttles, and crucial technological and software challenges related to road safety were identified. Photo: Petr Pokorny, TØI The successful full implementation of automated shuttles...
Exploratory dynamic modelling of modal choices towards carbon free urban transport in Helsinki, Finland
VTT has investigated the potential of relatively small, exploratory, dynamic models to produce insight for policy-making to facilitate at modal shifts towards carbon free urban transport. Further, the key elements that build such a model have been identified. To offer citizens alternative modal...
Travel by public transport has decreased significantly during the pandemic due to increased remote working, cancelled activities and fewer social gatherings. But it is also a natural consequence of the recommendations to avoid public transport and not to travel during rush hour. “Public...
The streets of the future have high demands to meet, in terms of both technical design and construction. Researchers from the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) are looking for smart solutions to meet four megatrends: Urbanisation, digitalisation, electrification and...
C-ITS services offering real-time traffic information are estimated to have a large potential to improve road safety, traffic flow, and energy efficiency. For freight traffic, these improvements could result in cost-benefits. Photo: Shutterstock NordicWay 2 and 3 (www.nordicway.net) projects...
