Emission tests in earlier TNO studies show that a small group (6%) of petrol passenger cars, with a malfunctioning three-way catalytic converter, account for a large proportion (36%) of the total NOx emissions of passenger cars. NOx emissions in vehicles with a defective three-way catalytic converter can increase by a factor of 10 or more...

In this research a controller is developed that can control path-tracking both within and beyond stable limit handling. The controller is based on the equations of motion of the nonlinear bicycle model. The performance of the controller is evaluated in simulation, a sensitivity analysis is performed and the controller is implemented on a 1/10...

Partially automated car systems are expected to soon become available to the public. However, in order for any of the potential benefits of automated driving to arise, the driver and car need to establish effective, efficient and satisfactory interactions. Otherwise, the driver may rely too much on the automated car system, leading to dangerous...

Modern cars are increasingly being equipped with automated driving functions. For governments it is important to gain insight in the mobility impacts of automated vehicles. This is important as the introduction of automated vehicles affects current investment decisions about infrastructure projects and other policy measures like road pricing....

We investigated whether motion sickness analogous to carsickness can be studied in a moving base simulator, despite the limited motion envelope. Importantly, to avoid simulator sickness, vision outside the simulator cabin was restricted. Participants (N = 16) were exposed blindfolded to 15-min lateral sinusoidal motion at 0.2 Hz and 0.35 Hz on...

This paper describes a study which gives insight into the size of improvement that is possible with individual in-car routing advice based on the actual traffic situation derived from floating car data (FCD). It also gives an idea about the required penetration rate of floating car data needed to achieve a certain degree of improvement. The...

This paper presents the design of a hybrid electric powertrain for the InMotion IM01 race car. InMotion is a multidisciplinary project group of experienced master students, PhD students, and professors. The authors of this paper were involved in the project to develop a suitable powertrain architecture for use in the IM01 series hybrid race car....

New technologies have led to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. Sedentary behaviour is characterised by physical inactivity and is associated with several health risks. This excessive sitting does not only take place in the office or at home, but also during daily commute. Therefore, BMW AG developed an active seating system for the back seat...

This thesis provides new knowledge on how to design comfortable passenger seats and provides recommendations for design and research. Although the first studies on passenger seat comfort appeared already 40 years ago, the activities and context have changed since then. In this thesis, relationships have been mapped out between activities ...

In the invited talk 'Car2x with SDN, NFV and supercomputers' we report about how our past work with SDN [1, 2] allows the design of a smart mobility fieldlab in the huge parking lot the Amsterdam Arena. We explain how we can engineer and test software that handle the complex conditions of the Car2X case. The talk starts by describing the...

Background: There is a demand for interiors to support other activities in a car than controlling the vehicle. Currently, this is the case for the car passengers and-in the future-autonomous driving cars will also facilitate drivers to perform other activities. One of these activities is working with handheld devices. Objective: Previous...

It is important to understand human kinematics and muscle activation patterns in emergency maneuvers for the design of safety systems and for the further development of human models. The objective of this study was to quantify kinematic behavior and muscle activation in simulated steering tests in several realistic conditions. In total 108 tests...

Several types of diesel exhaust particles (DEPs) have been used for toxicology studies, including a highorganic automobile DEP (A-DEP) from Japan, and a low-organic forklift DEP developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (N-DEP). However, these DEPs were not characterized extensively for chemical composition or sub...

Quiet vehicles may be noticed relatively late and therefore constitute a potential risk for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and bicyclists. The ideal acoustic warning signal generator notifies vulnerable road users while minimizing noise pollution. Several sensor systems exist which are able to reveal the position of the vulnerable...

This paper presents a combined control and estimation framework for energy recuperation in fully electric vehicles. We consider a fully electric powertrain, with a driven front axle operating on low friction road surfaces. Our objective is to find the blending of regenerative and friction braking that maximizes the amount of recovered energy (i...

For car manufacturers, seat comfort is becoming more important in distinguishing themselves from their competitors. Therefore, many studies on participative seat comfort are carried out. In this paper, an objective assessment approach is reported which evaluates the concept of "optimal load distribution", based on the identification of a close...

Connected Cruise Control (CCC) is a system, that is currently under development within a HTAS project. CCC aims to improve throughput in dense motorway traffic by advising drivers how to drive. The advice will integrate a lane advice, a headway advice and speed advice. The CCC advice will be provided via a nomadic device, using input from...
