In the next few decades, much of VTI’s research will revolve around three major trends in the technological development of the transport system: electrification, automation and digitalisation. “All three areas are very important, but electrification is the most crucial thing. It’s the key...
The world is in a process of transformation: global warming, resource scarcity, demographic changes, and urbanisation are uncertainties that also influence the automotive industry and challenge it to respond. The transformation would go much further than safe and sustainable travel. It would...
A couple of years ago, VTI decided to increase its maritime research, and today about ten people at the institute work with related research in areas such as transport economics, logistics, the environment, and behavioural science. For many years, VTI’s maritime research was quite modest and...
The oldest is the test road machine, which was built during World War II. It was initially used to find better solutions for gravel road constructions. Then came asphalt. The concrete coffers for the gravel road construction were turned upside down(!), and then the machine could be used to improve...
Electric flight route Stavanger-Bergen – Commitment to testing electric planes is socially beneficial
An investment in a demonstration case with electric planes on the Stavanger-Bergen route in the 2020s can accelerate electric aircraft in Norwegian aviation and thus have a greater net societal benefit than not investing in electric aviation. This is the main conclusion in a new report from the...
VTI strives to increase research in the field of rail transport, and currently it has about twenty people working in this area. Together they represent a broad and deep competence base with an interdisciplinary approach. Peter Torstensson, acting Director of Research at VTI and a docent at...
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...
