VERKSAMHETEN 1990-1993. TFBS VERKSAMHETSPLAN

Research which is given priority is as follows:(1) Environmental aspects of traffic, with special reference to public transport and rail traffic; (2) Traffic safety; (3) Development of national economically effective means of control for transport, with studies of investment in transport infrastructure, and (4) Transport demand and the impact of different transport systems and furthermore the possibilities of development in technology. Generally, there is lack of knowledge of relevant cost-demand relationships, quality evaluation, environmental costs, prediction errors. Research into passenger transport comprises development of models and methodology, environment and energy, railways. Research into goods transport and materials administration relates to e.g. goods transport. Great emphasis will continue to be placed on traffic safety research, e.g. acquisition of information and decisions by drivers, the speed problem, and unprotected road users. Posts and telecommunications is a new area of responsibility for the Board. Some research tasks: infrastructure, environment, energy and railways, are common to all areas. The Board keeps abreast of international r&d in several ways: international databases, publications in English, participation in international conferences. Total r&d grant for 1989/90 is SEK 39m.
