IT will solve tomorrow's energy problems
Reducing our electricity consumption which will lead to smarter storage and distribution of electricity are two major challenges we face. When the third meeting of the conference ICES begins on 2 September, the arrangers and the researchers at KTH intend to tackle these problems; they also aim to define a number of new challenges which are worthy of further research.
Popular science: What will it cost to own & operate driverless trucks in the future?
In our series "Interview with an ITRL researcher", we interview a researcher asking a range of questions designed to capture how their work contributes to society, the environment, industry, and general wellbeing, in order to give you an overview of their work. If it sounds like something you may be interested in, you can follow the link at the end of the interview and read their whole publication.
Aviation's VIP line must be reviewed
Sweden's most notable transport researcher has recently presented his thesis and it is an extensive report. Among other things, it appears that better vehicle technologies and fuels are not sufficient to achieve our climate goals, that there is a need to reduce car travel by 30 percent and that air traffic will surpass car traffic within 10 years as regards the emission of greenhouse gases.
National infrastructure plan leads to increased environmental impact
Today’s transport planning is in conflict with transport policy objectives and will produce an increased environmental impact. As a result, they don’t contribute to long-term sustainable transport services. These are some of the conclusions KTH researchers Göran Finnveden and Jonas Åkerman have found which will be presented at an international conference in Linköping tomorrow, 10 May.
Intelligent cars will produce safer drivers
New research at KTH shows that you can divide drivers into different groups through a system of measurement, those who are skilled and those who are not quite as skilled. This research may ultimately help the industry to create vehicles that are better suited to different drivers’ individual needs. The goal is that the vehicle will help drivers to become both safer on the roads and feel better behind the wheel.
