All-weather tyres have significantly poorer characteristics than regular winter and summer tyres in all conditions. The traction on icy road surfaces is so poor that the tyres cannot be seen as roadworthy for Swedish winter roads. This is shown in a new report from VTI and Folksam. VTI's...
The STYLE project (An active lifestyle as an enabler of sustainable growth) funded by the Strategic Research Council of the Academy of Finland examined the prerequisites for sustainable growth by means of promoting active transport modes and everyday physical activity of different age groups....
The way of living today, not least how we travel, put our planet under an unsustainable pressure. The term “planetary boundaries” is developed within earth science, and in short, is a way of expressing how much the planet can tolerate. If we don’t adapt our lifestyle to fit these defined...
In recent years, there have been a number of serious road accidents due to motorists skidding off the road. The reason is believed to be that the country's roads are becoming increasingly smooth. VTI has investigated the cause of the problem in a pilot study. New designs of studded tyres, a rise...
On 27 and 28 March 2023, a combined mobility sector is organizing Norway's largest research-based conference on transport and mobility in Oslo. We live in a time of tough climate targets, energy challenges and an ongoing war in Europe, which largely affect the transport sector. Changes and new...
Serious Games are games created primarily for a purpose other than entertainment. The CATAPULT research project uses board games and maps to rethink self-driving vehicles and the future of public transport. The games provide interesting insights, according to the first Swedish test participants...
A new research project will study how public transport can become more resilient, inclusive, and integrated. Four countries will do case studies with different focus. In Sweden the researchers will study how micromobility solutions can be used with public transport in an inclusive way. Across...
Today, public transport is characterised by a concentration of infrastructure and resources to fewer but more attractive “transit corridors”, as well as the ongoing effort to strengthen the attractiveness of public transport as a sustainable alternative to the car. However, this has not always...
