Electrical bus fleet simulator – system level validation
A key method in the optimisation of novel electric vehicle systems are simulations. Simulations provide important information that can be utilised to plan an optimised system with reduced total costs and harmful emissions, or optimise the operation of a system with digital-twin solutions. However,...

Impacts of connected and automated driving on national road authorities’ policy targets
The main purpose of this article is to summarize state of the art on the impacts of connected and automated driving (CAD) on travel demand, travel behavior, traffic flow, safety and energy (reported in MANTRA deliverable D3.1). The review is based on ongoing and recently completed EU and national...

Tests are underway in VTI’s new bicycle simulator
A project is currently underway in which VTI’s recently developed bicycle simulator is being used to study the interaction between cyclists, and drivers. The aim is to investigate how different infrastructure designs and types of vehicles influence cyclist behaviour at intersections. The project...
