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,...

Electric vehicles cut emissions from goods delivery by 94 per cent
Replacing diesel cars with small electric vehicles virtually eliminated greenhouse gas emissions from goods delivery in downtown Oslo. No conflicts or accidents during the test period occurred, but the efficiency of the logistics was not as good as expected beforehand. These are the main...

Questions abound on microplastics from road traffic
According to an estimate, tyre wear particles accounts for at least half of the Swedish microplastics emissions. While tyre particles are actually rubber, they are often included in the definition of microplastics. In 2017, the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) was...

EU project to reduce emissions
Road transport is a major source of air pollution that harms human health and the environment. A three-year EU project, in which VTI is participating, aims to achieve a wider societal impact by providing citizens with the knowledge and tools to understand, assess and control their pollutant...
