Literature study on practical impacts of driving automation on traffic flow efficiency and emissions
Marketing and media have raised high expectations towards automated vehicles lowering road traffic emissions and improving efficiency, in addition to safety benefits. However, there is little evidence yet exists to support these claims, as found in a recent literature study. Kehä 3 - E18,...

Testing automation in EU project
The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) is leading a series of tests in a major EU project on automated driving. The first driving tests were carried out on a test track in Slovenia in December 2017. The project will focus in part on acceptance among different groups in...
