VTI simulator included in a study on how drivers are affected by carbon dioxide
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...

Increased interest in train simulators
VTI has developed a train simulator that has become a valued tool in train driver education and research on how simulators can be used to improve railway technology. Birgitta Thorslund, Senior Research Leader at VTI, explains that the simulator helps to give train drivers a better working...

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...

Simulator used to practice emergency responses safely
Emergency responses of the police, ambulance, and rescue services are associated with a high risk of accidents, but practicing them in real traffic is neither safe nor permissible. A simulator-based method developed by the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) offers a unique...

Loss of field of vision need not mean reduced driving ability
The Swedish Transport Agency has tasked the National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) with developing a simulator-based test method for assessing driving ability in individuals with loss of field of vision. In a newly published report, the researchers describe the approved method, which...
