Seminar on Video Analysis
The development of an automatic video analysis system in order to streamline the collection and analysis of road user behaviour has reached a new milestone. As such, we invite you to a seminar during which we will showcase and discuss the use of this system on the 4th of April in Lund. This project is a collaboration between the Department of Technology and Society and the Centre for Mathematical Sciences at Lund University. Click here for more information on the seminarPlease note that this event will be held in Swedish.

Transport and Roads is involved in a European research project on parking
The project "PUSH & PULL" aims to examine parking and its role as an instrument towards a more energy efficient transport system. Transport and Roads is one of 15 actors involved in the project and will assist with scientific expertise and evaluation.

K2 - Knowledge and competence for an attractive public transport
Lund University, together with Malmö University and VTI, is leading the competence centre K2 - Knowledge and competence for an attractive public transport.
