Coordination of autonomous vehicles at intersections with decentralized V2V communication
In order to minimize the accidents, autonomous vehicles are being designed as the future of transportation. To fulfill this goal, we should look at vehicular intersections, where unfortunately most car accidents take place. ...
Real-time crash prediction in an urban expressway using disaggregated data
(Elsevier Ltd, 2018)
We develop accident prediction models for a stretch of the urban expressway Autopista Central in Santiago, Chile, using disaggregate data captured by free-flow toll gates with Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) which, ...
Battery health management for small-size rotary-wing electric unmanned aerial vehicles: An efficient approach for constrained computing platforms
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
This article presents a holistic framework for the design, implementation and experimental validation of Battery Management Systems (BMS) in rotatory-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) that allows to accurately (i) ...
Robotics research in Chile: addressing the needs of the local mining industry at the Advanced Mining Technology Center
The development of research in robotics in a developing country is a challenging task. Factors such as low research funds, low trust from local companies and the government, and a small number of qualified researchers ...
Spatial disaggregation of traffic emission inventories in large cities using simplified top-down methods
Simple, inexpensive and accurate methods for assessing the spatial distribution of traffic emissions are badly needed for the environmental management in South American cities. In this study, various spatial disaggregation ...
A systematic review of the effectiveness of interventions to reduce motor vehicle crashes and their injuries among the general and working populations
(Pan American Health Organization, 2018)
© 2018 Pan American Health Organization. All Rights Reserved. Objective. To summarize the best available international scientific evidence on the effectiveness of interventions to reduce motor vehicle collisions and their ...
Exhaust PAH in Chilean vehicles: Levels, source signatures and receptor modeling
(Elsevier Ltd, 1998)
Caries prevention through a nutritional vehicle
In order to evaluate the efficacy of fluoridated milk as a cariostatic nutritional product, the biological and technical possibilities of adding fluoride (F) as monofluorophosphate (MFP) to milk were studied, together with ...
Mode-valued differences of in-vehicle travel time Savings
The value of in-vehicle travel time savings (VT) estimated from mode-choice models has been sometimes found to be higher for private car than for public transportation. This mode-valued variation may seem paradoxical, if ...
Optimal fleet size, frequencies and vehicle capacities considering peak and off-peak periods in public transport
The fleet for surface transit in urban areas - number of buses and vehicle size - is usually determined by the characteristics of demand during the peak period, adjusting frequencies for other periods where those characteristics ...
