  1. 1. Application of Geofence for Safe Interaction with Emergency Vehicles

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Kommunikations- och transportsystem; Linköpings universitet/Tekniska fakulteten

    Author : Tereza Kunclova; [2022]
    Keywords : Geofence; geofencing; geofence instruction; emergency vehicle; driving simulator experiment; driver behavior;

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis was to investigate if geofence instructions communicated via an in-vehicle human-machine interface (HMI) can have a positive impact on driver behavior when interacting with emergency vehicles. A total of n = 64 study participants were tested in a driving simulator on two different use cases without or with applied geofence instructions. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Development of A Simple Engineering Calculation Method for Wildfire Scenarios

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Muthia Khairunisa Jaelani; [2022]
    Keywords : Wildfire; evacuation; WUI fire; evacuation modelling; traffic modelling; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Emergency planning is required to respond to the increasing wildfire threat. A part of this is to assess a community’s capacity to move to a safe place during wildfires. This can be achieved by calculating the time it takes for a community to evacuate from an at-risk area to a relatively safe place. READ MORE

  3. 3. Shaping trust between users and autonomous cars in situations involving emergency vehicles: A human-centered design approach

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Johan Almroth; Milos Bastajic; Philip Berg; Rebecka Berg; Isabella Fransson; Midia Keshto; [2021-09-14]
    Keywords : autonomous car; emergency vehicle; design; trust; HCD; design factors; self-driving; RtD; Reasearch through design;

    Abstract : Technological advances have accelerated the development of autonomous vehicles and fully autonomous cars are now on the horizon. As automation gradually replaces the driver, their role in the car becomes ambiguous. In order to reap the benefits of such a system, the place of man must be understood and taken into account.

  4. 4. Simulation and time-series analysis for Autonomous Emergency Braking systems

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Zhiying Xu; [2021]
    Keywords : Autonomous Driving AD ; CARLA; Autonomous Emergency Braking AEB ; Deep Learning; Time-series analysis; Autonom körning; CARLA; Autonomt nödsystem; Djup lärning; Tidsföljder;

    Abstract : One central challenge for Autonomous Driving (AD) systems is ensuring functional safety. This is affected by all parts of vehicle automation systems: environment perception, decision making, and actuation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Stochastic Model Predictive Control for Autonomous Emergency Integrated Braking and Steering System

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : DEKUN WANG; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Controlling both longitudinal and lateral dynamics of an autonomous vehicle confronting possible collision requires ecient perception of surrounding environment and optimal use of its maneuverability. In emergency, separate steering or braking may not be able to avoid collision or ensure stability of the vehicle. READ MORE
