Abstract

The European research project DESERVE (DEvelopment platform for Safe and Efficient dRiVE, 2012-2015) had the aim of designing and developing a platform tool to cope with the continuously increasing complexity and the simultaneous need to reduce cost for future embedded Advanced Driver [...]

Abstract

This paper presents the first results of the publicly funded ECSEL project DENSE (Adverse weather environmental sensing system). DENSE seeks to eliminate one of the most pressing problems of automated driving: the inability of current systems to sense their surroundings under all [...]

Abstract

Research to inform policy is often challenged with how to genuinely use and implement research findings in decision-making and policy-planning. To begin with, the dialogue between researchers and decision-makers is essential to ensure profound understanding and legitimate interpretations [...]

Abstract

The paper focuses on the innovative strength that the DESERVE platform has brought on the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) market in terms of major safety and economic affordability. DESERVE is a project aimed at designing and implementing a low-cost, integrated platform [...]

Abstract

In the framework of the CCSP R&D program, the regulatory gaps have been assessed at VTT using the current monitoring rules for capture, pipeline transportation and geological storage of CO"sub"2"/sub" as a benchmark. The scope of the presented work includes: (i) definition of CO"sub"2"/sub" [...]

Abstract

This paper presents the results of a safety impact assessment, providing quantitative estimates of the safety impacts of ten intelligent transport systems (ITS) which were designed to improve safety, mobility and comfort of vulnerable road users (VRUs). The evaluation method originally [...]

Abstract

m: An easy-to-use human factors (HF) tool for air traffic control (ATC) operators was applied in an air traffic management (ATM) organization to ensure ATC operators' learning and commitment to HF, which is seen as a critical factor in improving safety. Methods: ATC operators analyzed [...]

Abstract

Simulation has become an established technique to support the design of complex, mechatronic or cyber-physical systems. Ideally, simulations should already be performed at an early design phase before high-cost design commitments are made, and the recent advances in the digitalization [...]

Abstract

It can be difficult to select from available safety preventative measures, especially where there is limited evidence of effectiveness in different contexts. This paper describes application of a method to identify and evaluate wide-ranging preventative measures for rail suicide and [...]

Abstract

Growing concerns over energy and environmental sustainability have lately sparked worldwide interest in more efficient and cleaner transportation systems and industrial activities. Friction roughly consumes one-fifth of all energy used worldwide. One-third of all energy used in transportation [...]
