Our new project, funded by Chalmers Area of Advance Transport, combines expertise from the built environment and vehicle systems domains to address the traffic safety and liveability challenges that urban settings are facing due to technology and societal developments, namely with different vehicle automation technologies and new personal mobility systems. In a collaboration between SMoG, Division of Urban Design and Planning, and SAFER, Division of Vehicle Safety, the project will work with analyses and workshop activities focusing on future transportation scenarios, particularly the interaction of motorized and non-motorized road users. Emphasis will be placed on the modelling approaches used in the different domains to address pedestrian and traffic movements. The project will lead to interdisciplinary project ideas where collaboration between the two domains can lead to new research paradigms and solutions for sustainable transport.
