Bicycle safety is quickly becoming an increasingly important field as the number of electric bicycles on the streets grows faster each year. E-bikes are able to accelerate quicker and travel at faster speeds than conventional bicycles, increasing the severity of injuries in case of an accident. There are a number of ways to improve safety, such...

People need to have a comfortable experience in vehicles nowadays. However, they are continuously exposed to vibrations from the vehicle. Madymo active human models (AHM) can be used for comfort analysis and to learn how vibrations influence the human body in several aspects. However, existing AHM are very time-consuming due to their complexity,...

The objective of this study is to simulate lumbar stabilization in autonomous vehicles through the utility of OpenSim. Considering sufficient isometric strength is required for dynamic analysis, validity of the full-body model developed by Schmid et al. [43] in isometric conditions is examined first. This encompasses the establishment of maximal...

The mental model is a very rarely studied topic when it comes to human-machine interaction. Nearly all the studies that are done in this field are on measuring the actual performance of the human while performing the collaborative task with the automation system rather than understanding the complete picture of how the human is understanding and...

Increased susceptibility to motion sickness, due to the transition away from driving, will be one of the major hurdles in the widespread use of automated vehicles. Sustained exposure to motion sickness can lead to the disuse of automated vehicle technology among users. Thus, there is a need to mitigate motion sickness. To do so, a robust model...

Following the literature review, our goal was to study the effect and interaction of motion sickness and motivation on cognitive performance in a reading comprehension task and the associated workload with the task. We chose UCKAT reading tasks for our cognitive task, monetary incentive and ranks as our motivator and a multisine sickening motion...

Growth of mobility for people and goods transportation has been increasing steadily over the years. With the perpetual increase in number of road vehicles, comes the inevitable problems of traffic and pollution. Various intelligent traffic technologies and strategies have been proposed and implemented over the years to...

Traffic is a self-organising, regulated system, but there are several ambiguous situations where no rules apply. In such situations, communication is important in order to achieve a smooth traffic flow and a safe situation. However, in the majority of traffic conflicts, adequate coordination between road users is lacking. Communication is...

A large number of pedestrian fatalities and the emergence of autonomous vehicles (AVs) creates a need for research in vehicle to pedestrian (V2P) interaction. Gestures (e.g., hand movement, eye contact) used for communication between pedestrians and manually driven vehicle plays a significant role to reduce ambiguities and make safe road...

Long before humans will completely trust fully automated vehicles, partial and conditional automation where the human driver is still in the loop will dominate the era of autonomous vehicles. However, more than 90% of traffic accidents are due to human errors, of which approximately half appear to be due to perceptual errors. Especially at busy...

Due to recent advancements in automated driving systems, drivers are able to withdraw themselves from the control loop of the vehicle in certain driving situations. However, system limits occur relatively frequently, which results in the driver having to take back control. It is argued most currently used take-over quality quantification methods...

Merging is one of the most demanding tasks for a truck driver due to the size, weight and limited visual clearance of a truck. Automating the merging procedure can be the solution for a considerable number of accidents by removing the human factor. People have accepted the risk they are in when driving or being driven but acceptance of automated...

Self-driving cars is considered the next major step in the automotive industry and with automation in passenger vehicles, the driver can benefit from the freed up time for leisure or work, as he or she becomes the passenger. However, this is only possible if the drivers are comfortable during automated driving. The major issue here, is that the...

The future brings Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs), where platooning with small inter-vehicle time gaps is possible. However, before the situation that the entire car park exists of CAVs, there is a transition period. This MSc. thesis has developed two strategies (in MOTUS), to let CAVs actively form platoons with dynamic dedicated lane...

Steering feel is an important variable that contributes to drivers’ assessment of safety and comfort. As such, creating acceptable steering feel is one of the goals of automotive manufacturers. Prediction of subjective steering feel based on objective measures, for example, driver torque characteristics, can benefit the automotive industry by...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are being developed by several companies and research groups worldwide. The implicit communication (e.g., eye contact) of the vehicle or driver seems to play an important role in the expected behaviour of vehicles. It is possible that vulnerable road users (VRUs) are less able to estimate the intention of vehicles (e.g.,...

With various levels of automated vehicles on the verge, the human will be put in the operator role and this poses historic human-machine interaction challenges regarding sustained attention, mental workload, and engagement. Augmented reality based interfaces may help address some of these problems. We presume that more lifelike interfaces, in...

In this research, insight is gained into the impacts of truck platooning on traffic performance and safety at motorway on-ramps in mixed traffic using microscopic simulation. Thereby different platooning strategies and platoon configurations are considered, that for instance differ in desired platoon inter-vehicle gaps and platoon sizes. The...

A fundamental prerequisite for many robot-tasks is the availability of an environment model. The ability of a robot to create such a model itself is crucial to having truly autonomous robots around in our daily lives. For basic robot-tasks, a two-dimensional grid-map that describes a distinction between inhabitable and uninhabitable space is a...

Current research on automated vehicles focuses mainly on the drivers of automated vehicles, on its potential to improve the efficiency of traffic operations, safety, congestion and societal benefits, public’s acceptance of automated vehicles as a transport system and the willingness to buy automated vehicles. Nevertheless, there is a research...
