Our projects

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
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
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

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
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
Systems for automatic activation of brakes and steering are currently entering the market. The systems use proximity sensors to monitor the state of surrounding actors. Depending on the specific situation the effort/possibility to avoid or mitigate an accident may differ
This project aims at building world-class competence in critical areas of vehicle-to-vehicle communications. We intend to attack several open, fundamental research questions in channel characterization and modeling (the nature of vehicle-to-vehicle [V2V] radio channels is not well understood at this
The scope of this project is to create a technological and a scientific platform to develop and test active safety and cooperative applications for VRU at SAFER. Such platforms should: 1) build up on the previous work performed in the
Vehicular system designers often use simulation tools in order to prove vehicular systems.The computational complexity of detailed simulations limits the scale of such testings.Therefore, it is often the case that the first full-scale demonstrations of new concepts for vehicular systems

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.
