10/10/2006 - Development and Evaluation of a Novel Traffic Friendly Commuter Vehicle

Traffic congestion in the country’s major metropolitan areas continues to grow every year. Annual increases in traffic demand outpace increases in highway capacity, making it unlikely that roadway expansion can ever provide a solution to highway congestion. This talk discusses the development of a new class of narrow commuter vehicles that can play a significant role in reducing traffic congestion. A prototype narrow vehicle with automatic tilt control has been developed at the University of Minnesota. Results will be presented from a research project focused on making this narrow vehicle as safe, comfortable, and easy to drive as a regular passenger sedan.
