Mälardalen University (MDH) together with the Alfred Nobel Science Park and MITC AB has been granted over 16 million SEK for the TransMission project. The purpose of the three-year project is to overcome the challenges facing the automotive industry in the technology shift towards electric vehicles.
The human factor lies behind 90 percent of all traffic accidents. But if vehicles can learn to identify risk behaviours in pedestrians, cyclists and drivers, a large number of these accidents can be prevented. This is what researchers in the new project SimuSafe, a major international venture in which Mälardalen University (MDH) is taking part, believe, and which will take three and a half years to develop such a system.
