Optimal safety incentives in road concession contracts.
European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research (1567-7133) 2014; 14; 4; 394 - 411.
TRANSyT; Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

Changes in the roles of the government and the private sector in the provision of public services along with budget constraints are resulting in an increasing use of the concession approach for financing and managing roads. In the last few years, many of these contracts set up incentives linked to bonuses to encourage the concessionaire to render a better service to the users. Road safety is one ... + ver más

PCDD/F emissions from light-duty diesel vehicles operated under highway conditions and a diesel-engine based power generator.
JOURNAL OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS (0304-3894) 2014; 278; 116 - 123.
Universitat d'Alacant

PCDD/F emissions from three light-duty diesel vehicles - two vans and a passenger car - have been measured in on-road conditions. We propose a new methodology for small vehicles: a sample of exhaust gas is collected by means of equipment based on United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) method 23A for stationary stack emissions. The concentrations of O-2, CO, CO2, NO, NO2 and SO2 ... + ver más

Two Applications of Statistics to Traffic Models.
Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods (0361-0926) 2014; 43; 10-12; 2118 - 2134.
Universidad de Cantabria

Two statistical applications for estimation and prediction of flows in traffic networks are presented. In the first, the number of route users are assumed to be independent -shifted gamma (, (0)) random variables denoted H(, , (0)), with common (0). As a consequence, the link, OD (origin-destination) and node flows are also H(, , (0)) variables. We assume that the main source of information is pl ... + ver más

Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies (0968-090X) 2014; 42; 147 - 167.
Université de Sfax; Universidad de Granada; MIR Labs; Technical University of Ostrava

Usually, road networks are characterized by their great dynamics including different entities in interactions. This leads to more complex road traffic management. This paper proposes an adaptive multiagent system based on the ant colony behavior and the hierarchical fuzzy model. This system allows adjusting efficiently the road traffic according to the real-time changes in road networks by the in ... + ver más

Improving Vehicle Safety: A New Methodology for Vehicle Steering System Inspection by Means of Forces Measure.
Advances in Mechanical Engineering (1687-8132) 2014; 0 - 0.
Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

Some mechanical systems, such as steering, brakes, and suspension, critically affect the safety of the vehicle. These systems are subject to wear through use and time, changing their status throughout the lifetime of a vehicle. It is, therefore, essential to develop adequate components and procedures of inspection that ensure the correct operation of these systems. Moreover, the steering inspecti ... + ver más

Escuela Colombiana Ingn Julio Garavito; Universidad Politécnica de Madrid

This paper applies an integrated modeling approach to the case of Spain; the approach is based on a random utility-based multiregional input-output model and a road transport network model for assessing the effect of introducing longer and heavier vehicles (LHVs) on the regional consumer price index (CPI) and on the transportation system. The approach strongly supports the concept that changes in ... + ver más

The road against fatalities: Infrastructure spending vs. regulation??.
Journal of the Electrochemical Society (0013-4651) 2013; 59; 227 - 239.
Universitat de Barcelona

The road safety literature is typified by a high degree of compartmentalization between studies that focus on infrastructure and traffic conditions and those devoted to the evaluation of public policies and regulations. As a result, few studies adopt a unified empirical framework in their attempts at evaluating the road safety performance of public interventions, thus limiting our understanding o ... + ver más

University of Aveiro; University of Minho; Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa; University of Lisboa; Instituto de Diagnóstico Ambiental y Estudios del Agua (CSIC)

An atmospheric aerosol study was performed in 2008 inside an urban road tunnel, in Lisbon, Portugal. Using a high volume impactor, the aerosol was collected into four size fractions (PM0.5, PM0.5-1, PM1-2.5 and PM2.5-10) and analysed for particle mass (PM), organic and elemental carbon (OC and EC), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), soluble inorganic ions and elemental composition.

Traffic flow harmonization in expressway merging.
Personal and Ubiquitous Computing (1617-4909) 2013; 17; 3; 519 - 532.

Steering a vehicle is a task increasingly challenging the driver in terms of mental resources. Reasons for this include the increasing volume of road traffic and a rising quantity of road signs, traffic lights, and other distractions at the roadside (such as billboards), to name a few.
