In a laboratory study, the annoyance caused by the passby sounds from a magnetic levitation (maglev) train was investigated. The listeners were presented with various sound fragments. The task of the listeners was to respond after each presentation to the question: "How annoying would you find the sound in the preceding period if you were...

Child restraint systems (CRS) for cars are intended to protect children in the case of a car accident. Unfortunately their effectiveness is still too low: in the range 30-50% when it would be expected to be much higher. The low effectiveness of child restraint systems can partly be explained for the youngest passengers by their greater cervical...

To provide protection to pedestrians in collision with passenger vehicles, the design and construction of a vehicle’s bumper, hood and fender panels must be addressed. TNO has undertaken a research project in conjunction with DSM to investigate how this may be done. Vehicle styling, packaging and an analysis led design process will be shown for...

In 1987 TNO Automotive started the execution of a large scale in-use compliance program for passenger cars. The initial goal of the program was: 'Monitoring the emission performance of passenger cars in-use and relating this performance to the situation at type approval'. In the early years the program proved to be very useful for detection of...

In this paper four energy scenarios for Westy-European passenger transport are developed. To start with, the present transport system as a base-line case is described and analysed. Next, for each scenario we sketch how the passenger transport system may look like in terms of the use of various existing and future transport technologies and the...

TNO Human Factors is involved in the process of designing and testing a new concept for driver workplaces in passenger cars, i.e. with a horizontally fixed driver seat and adjustable pedals, steering wheel and instrument panel. This new concept is intended to achieve an interior space and arrangement of instruments that supports the driver task...

We consider the problem of cost optimal railway line allocation for passenger trains for the Dutch railway system. At present, the allocation of passenger lines by Dutch Railways is based on maximizing the number of direct travelers. This paper develops an alternative approach that takes operating costs into account. A mathematical programming...

The European Enhanced Vehicle-Safety Committee (EEVC) established Working Group 14 (WG14) with the task to develop a test procedure and performance standard for energy-absorbing front underrun protection systems for trucks in order to reduce the injuries to car occupants in frontal collisions between passenger cars and trucks. WG14 defined a...

A 10 m high, vertical, synthetic acoustic antenna (Syntacan) has been used to measure the acoustic source strength and the vertical source distribution of a French TGV, as a function of the speed of the train, the frequency of the sound and the coach type (passenger coach, power car). The results are intended as input for calculation schemes and...

In the Netherlands a new freight-only railway route, the "Betuweroute", is being planned to carry freight traffic from Rotterdam harbour east into Germany. Inhabitants of areas near the future route are concerned about noise and vibration, and question the relevance of current legislation for a "freight-only" line. An analysis of field surveys,...
