Our projects

As technologies for active safety and vehicle automation grow ever more complex, it becomes increasingly important to complement traditional methods for testing these systems with virtual tests, based on computer simulations. The FFI QUADRA project (2010-2014) addressed this general topic,
The FFI project CompMethGlass II (Computational Method for laminated Glass in crashes) aims to 1) develop material models for PVB and adhesive joints and 2) develop a methodology for predicting failure in the area of adhesive material in the glass
The objective of the project is to demonstrate feasibility of CACC (Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Contro) on public roads, with trucks from Scania and Volvo at the haulage company Schenker. Furthermore, platooning (lateral and longitudinal control of trucks) will be demonstrated.
The FFI project Identification and Prediction of Injuries with Long Term Consequences aims to enhance understanding and evaluation of injuries leading to long term consequences with the purpose of developing countermeasure for enhanced protection. Specifically, the project targets to achieve
The aim is to answer the research question on how to assess the protection of the heterogeneous population of passengers in future car crashes. The purpose is to develop personalized restraints. Specifically, the project will achieve method developments based on
ADAS&Me (Adaptive ADAS to support incapacitated drivers Mitigate Effectively risks through tailor made HMI under automation) aims to develop ADAS that incorporate driver / rider state, situational / environmental context and adaptive HMI to automatically hand over different levels of
With automated transports, also the definition/combining of different vehicle units e.g. truck, dolly, trailer link into a vehicle combination will be automated. The project Complete Combination Vehicle Control with automated reconfiguration (C2VC) aims to solve the problem of how to
An inland harbor in Borås and autonomous trucks could contribute to more efficient container transport between Gothenburg port and Viared's trading area.This project aim to create the conditions for this. Auto Freight (originally called ”Highly Automated Freight Transport”, HAFT) want

Step 1: Computerized Clinical Decision Support To Improve Trauma Triage and Risk Assessment: A Low fidelity OSISP prototype The first step of the project aim was to design a low-fidelity prototype of a clinical decision support system utilizing an on-scene
The project aims to answer the question in what ways autonomous transport solutions will create value for people with varying needs and how we can model the benefits for future innovations. Human factors involved in interactions with automated transport system
Chronos is about making the first step to create a test platform for automation and ICT at AstaZero. The platform will be open for test and validation (certification) of coming autonomous functionality. It will be possible to make validation of
FFI Cykle (Halvtidsuppdatering cykelsäkerhetsforskning) is based on the report underlying the strategic announcement 'Bicycles and other vehicles in safe and smart cooperation'. The project concerns a review of the research situation for bicycle safety research. The aim is to stimulate
Human Factors for Automation (HF Auto) bridges the gap between engineers and psychologists through a multidisciplinary research and training programme. We combine engineering domains such as simulator hardware, traffic flow theory, control theory, and mathematical driver modelling with psychological domains
The overall objective of QUADRA is to develop and verify quantitative models of driver behavior, which can be applied within industry and academia in computer simulations with the purpose of evaluating, verifying and/or tuning active safety systems. Planned project duration
AstaZero (the Active Safety Test Area) is under construction during 2012-2014, and will open for operation in 2014. The research facility creates a unique opportunity for research and innovation in active safety functions. Chalmers University, SAFER, SP Technical Research Institute

Safer – Vehicle and Traffic Safety Centre

SAFER is the open innovation arena where researchers and expertise work together to create safe mobility. Our traffic safety approach covers people, vehicles and the infrastructure – and together we contribute to safer road transports and smarter, more sustainable cities.
