Vehicle Dynamics for Future Mobility …and not only Lateral

Wednesday May 26, 2021

Virtual seminar: Link to a zoom meeting will be sent out to participants registered with e-mail.

Purpose with the seminar

  • Present and discuss interesting issues within and challenges for Future Mobility
  • Develop and increase competence
  • Create understanding and interest for vehicle dynamics
  • Networking between Engineers and Organisations and Students

SVEAs objectives

  • To make vehicular technology’s voice heard in an increasingly more challenging debate among different vehicle types and transport modes both domestically and globally.
  • To build a network for efficient distribution of technological information
  • To attract the next generation of Swedish vehicular engineers

Poster exhibition

There will be an exhibition of posters. It can be, e.g., master thesis or PhD thesis projects, both concluded and almost concluded such. Please contact Lars Drugge <larsd@kth.se>; or Bengt Jacobson <bengt.jacobson@chalmers.se> if you would like to propose a poster.

Present list of posters:

  • Improving Vehicle Dynamics Development Process by combining simulation and motion platform simulator, Lidong Wang, Chalmers
  • Propelled and steered converter dolly for more efficient shunting of semi-trailers on goods terminals,  Neel Kachhawah and Clive Rahul Misquith, Chalmers
  • Evaluation of Active Rear Steering through Multi Body simulation, Gabriele Bertoli and Matteo Rossi, KTH


There will be proceedings from the seminar this year. This means that the presenters, including poster presenters, are welcome with a paper, or at least a public version of their presentation material. The proceedings will be available as a Chalmers and/or KTH report on the web.

Proceedings available at https://research.chalmers.se/publication/524553
