E-ENDORSE - Effects of E-Cars and Electric Powered Two-Wheelers on Road Safety

Project: Research project

Description

Beside energy efficiency, the planning of charging infrastructure and the ecological benefits, the topic road safety is of utmost relevance for the present boom of electric powered vehicles and requires further research. Due to different sizes, masses, weight distribution and hence acoustic properties of these types of vehicles, different vehicle dynamics and perceptions of other road users are expected. Those aspects may result in changed demands on crash probabilities, circumstances of accidents and severity rates, which this project proposes to investigate in depth.
