Rond 2025 rijilen alle openbaarvervoerbussen in ons land zonder uitstoot van schadelijke emissies, zo wil het ministerie van lnfrastructuur en Milieu Maar hoe zit het met de prestatie tussen bijvoorbeeld elektrische bussen en de huidige dieselbussen? TNO onderzocht de prestaties van een rz meter lange elektrische bus in de praktijk: dat kan nog...

Mensgericht ontwerpen van verkeers- en tunneltechnische installaties, VTTI, is eerder uitzondering dan regel. Jammer, want het kan leiden tot veiliger tunnelgebruik, betere tunnelbediening, efficiënter beheer en onderhoud en snellere hulp bij calamiteiten. Is mensgericht ontwerpen moeilijk? Een aantal ontwerpprincipes helpt al een eind op weg.

Objective: The amount of collected field data from naturalistic driving studies is quickly increasing. The data are used for, among others, developing automated driving technologies (such as crash avoidance systems), studying driver interaction with such technologies, and gaining insights into the variety of scenarios in real-world traffic....

Before the end of 2013, the responsible institutions of the European Union will probably decide on a proposal for a new “Regulation on the sound level of motor vehicles.” It will specify a new type approval test method for noise emission and will give revised limit values for the permissible noise emission per vehicle (sub-)category. The new...

Many books focus on individual differences and how those relate to traffic safety, such as accident proneness, gender differences, age, alcohol, and the effects of drugs. Others focus on the safety effects regarding the vehicle, such as airbags, anti-lock brakes, navigation systems, intelligent cruise control and other new gadgets coming...

Driver distraction and mental workload are two constructs that are closely related, but which are affected by different aspects of the driving situation and may also have different effects on driving performance. This chapter introduces the concept of latent driver distraction, a form of driver distraction that does not materialise in measurably...

Within the departments Environmentally Sustainable Transport and Automotive of TNO (Netherlands organisation for applied scientific research) several projects investigating safety aspects of electric vehicles have been conducted, including one in cooperation with KEMA and RDW of the Netherlands. Most attention in these projects was given to cars...

This paper describes the results of a study into how realistically traffic models can describe traffic movements and what the effects of shortcomings in the models are on emission calculations, e.g. in the evaluation of ITS measures. Data were collected at a signalised intersection in Rotterdam, using camera images to construct vehicle...

Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) is an often applied mechanism to suppress the emission of NOx in Diesel engines. EGR however, induces a pumping-loss, which reduces the fuel efficiency of the engine. The corresponding control problem is to track a reference EGR fraction, while simultaneously using the available actuators to minimize pumping-loss....

This paper presents an on-line model identification method for Li-ion battery parameters that combines high accuracy and low computational complexity. Experimental results show that modeling errors are smaller than 1% throughout the feasible operating range. The identified model is used in a state observer - an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) - to...

In the development of Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) systems, spacing policies are primarily developed for optimisation of string stability and traffic stability. However, the safety issue is hardly taken into account. Uncertainty in the communication network and sensor information makes deciding upon a safe minimal headway a non...

Cooperative driving systems influence individual vehicles, either through advisory or autonomous actions, so as to optimize the collective behavior in terms of throughput, safety, fuel consumption and/or emissions. Cooperative driving systems need to function properly in a vast amount of different traffic scenarios. However, performing field...

The noise mapping performed for the Environmental Noise Directive is used to evaluate noise exposure of the population. This requires a significant effort and consistent data collection and application of calculation methods. It is well known that considerable variation in noise mapping results can occur due to uncertainty in input data. For...

Real-world CO2 emissions of passenger cars very often deviate from the Type Approval value. The Type Approval value for CO2 emissions of passenger cars is based on a chassis dynamometer test in a laboratory. The total vehicle resistance of a vehicle, or 'road load', is simulated on the chassis dynamometer to obtain representative emissions. The...

To meet future CO2 emission targets, Waste Heat Recovery systems have recently attracted much attention for automotive applications, especially for long haul trucks. This paper focuses on the development of a dynamic counter-flow heat exchanger model for control purposes. The model captures the dynamic phenomena of two-phase fluid flow using the...

Recent innovations, such as automated driving and smart mobility, have elevated the safety-criticality of automotive systems due to the impact of these technologies on the traffic behavior and safety. New safety validation and assessment methodologies are required to provide the level of assurance that matches the societal impact of these...
