    Abstract : Is it possible to increase traffic flows and decrease stand stills in rush hour traffic by tweaking existing traffic light signals? A vehicle’s engine running on idle is not useful in physical terms and emits unnecessary exhausts. By investigating and observing signal phase times on site in Hangzhou, China, an effort was made to find out if it was possible to get better flow and thus lower emissions by changing the traffic signal programs.

  2. 2. Designing eHMI for trucks : How to convey the truck’s automated driving mode to pedestrians

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för tillämpad fysik och elektronik

    Author : Dardan Dauti; [2021]
    Keywords : Automated driving; External HMI; Human-Machine interface; Autonomous trucks; Automated heavy vehicle; Pedestrian interactions; eHMI- design;

    Abstract : If automated vehicles are to be introduced on public roads, they need to be able to communicate appropriately with other road users. This can be done using various interfaces and by communicating various messages. Previous research has mainly investigated design of such communication for automated passenger cars. READ MORE

  3. 3. PreCro : A Pedestrian Crossing Robot

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

    Author : EBBA HEDBERG; LINNEA SUNDIN; [2020]
    Keywords : mechatronics; Pixy2; vision sensor; magnetic encoders; pedestrian crossing; mekatronik; Pixy2; bildsensor; magnetisk givare; övergångsställe;

    Abstract : For people who suffer from visual impairment, getting around in traffic can be a great struggle. The robot PeCro, short for Pedestrian Crossing, was created as an aid for these people to use at pedestrian crossings equipped with traffic lights. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cycling as a Cooperative Act: Observing cyclists' interactions with pedestrians at a zebra crossing in Stockholm

    University essay from KTH/Urbana och regionala studier

    Author : Edward Prichard; [2020]
    Keywords : cycling; traffic planning; active travel; observational study; Stockholm; observiaire;

    Abstract :   Cycling is undergoing a welcome renaissance, especially in urban contexts. However, there are tensions, in relation to pedestrians, which could negatively affect cycling’s growth. This thesis observes the social interactions and physical reactions of cyclists when co-present with pedestrians at a zebra crossing in central Stockholm. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interactive Visual Analytics for Agent-Based simulation : Street-Crossing Behavior at Signalized Pedestrian Crossing

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

    Author : Jiaqi Zheng; [2019]
    Keywords : street-crossing behavior; spatio-temporal trajectory visualization; space utilization; visual analytics;

    Abstract : To design a pedestrian crossing area reasonably can be a demanding task for traffic planners. There are several challenges, including determining the appropriate dimensions, and ensuring that pedestrians are exposed to the least risks. READ MORE
