Welcome to the seventh International Conference on Traffic and Transport Psychology (ICTTP)

Mar, 17 2022

On behalf of the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) and SAFER Vehicle and Traffic Safety Centre at Chalmers we welcome you to the seventh International Conference on Traffic and Transport Psychology (ICTTP) on the 23-25th of August 2022 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The conference philosophy is Taking the Swedish Vision Zero Initiative into a New Decade. The renewed commitment aims to develop a safe transport system which is also sustainable. Efforts are therefore made to attain the global targets for safety but also for sustainable development adopted by the UN in 2015. The key focus of this conference will, therefore, be on the role that traffic and transport psychology can play in achieving a safe and sustainable transport system.

We’re looking forward to meeting you all and to listening to interesting and thought-provoking presentations; learning from each other; communicating, networking and enjoying a great ICTTP 2022 in Gothenburg.

Technical Visit to VTI’s driving simulator Sim IV

Date: August 22, 2022
Time: 15:00 – 16:30
Meeting point: Regnbågsgatan 1 (VTI’s office)

We have the pleasure of inviting you on a technical visit to VTI’s driving simulator Sim IV, located in Lindholmen Science Park. The Sim IV is one of the world’s most advanced driving simulators and has a motion system which permits significant linear movement along both the x and the y axes. The visual system consists of 9 projectors providing a forward field of view of 210 degrees and 3 LCD displays for the rear-view mirrors. Edge blending and geometrical correction is provided by a state-of-the-art system. The simulator is therefore often used when simultaneous longitudinal and lateral acceleration is important or if a wide field of vision is prioritised. The simulator has both a passenger car compartment and a truck cab and has been used in numerous projects within vehicle and road safety.

In conjunction with the ICTTP conference we can offer about 20 participants an opportunity to explore this world-class simulator, please make sure to register for the visit in the process of registration for the ICTTP conference.
