Autonomous vehicles are commonly less space-consuming – an important characteristic for the urban environment. As the distance between each vehicle decreases, the traffic will become denser, with the result of higher traffic network capacity. Traffic will also become safer when we can avoid accidents caused by human error.

We work within the following fields:

  • Applications for autonomous vessels
  • Technology development
  • Interaction with other vehicles and road users
  • Laws and regulations and their effects on safety and the environment
  • Human-machine interface for autonomous driving
