V_REX – Emission Free Offshore Transport

Organised by: V-Rex GmbH


Description: V-REX stands for a brand new and patented sailing technology for offshore transportation. Highly sophisticated and innovative sailing technology is transferred into a totally emission free cargo offshore transporter – the V-REX Cargo. The concept leads to high vessel-speeds which makes the product very interesting. More than that – once a V-REX Cargo is built, he will sail a whole lifetime without any energy from outside. Only wind and self-produced electric power by water- and wind-generators as well with photo voltaic will propel the vessel his entire lifetime. V-REX Cargo will transport goods under sail at far more than twice the speed than conventional cargo ships. The V-REX Cargo will be also able to load and unload the freight by itself even in very shallow waters.

The concept is going to be realized in 3 steps: 1) The very first step is to build a sport boat, showing the concept. Prototype is already built!; 2) The second step is a scale up version for offshore-racing and a pre-version of the third step; 3) The third step is the V-REX Cargo which can be used for very fast and emission free offshore transportation.

Inclusive crash safety

Organised by: VTI – Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute



Description: VTI presents the development of a set of Seat Evaluation Tools (SETs), an average female (50F) and male (50M) model/prototypes as vehicle seated occupants. The SETs are models of adult humans made for evaluation of the protective performance of vehicle seats in the event of a low severity rear impact, up to 24 km/h. A new set of evaluation tools have been developed for the analysis of occupant protection in low velocity rear collisions. Also, to enable comparison between the protection of the female and male part of the population, in addition to evaluation of the different injury preventing properties of car seats in these situations. This need is based on that the female part of the population is not, yet, represented in the models of the human used to assess the occupant safety of new cars. In addition, injury statistics shows that for several severe and fatal injuries females have a larger risk of these given the same crash circumstances. Welcome to meet the developers of the two-world unique Seat Evaluation Tools (SETs) and see the models. The project is carried out by VTI within the EU-funded project VIRTUAL. In the stand you can also, via VR, experience what it’s like to go with the bus of the future, a safer ride for everyone. An activity within the project Drive 2the Future, an EU-funded project within Horizon Europe.

An Iterative Risk Assessment Framework for Climate Change Adaptation in Pavement and Maintenance Strategies

Organised by: Maxint


Co-organiser: Technical University of Denmark

Description: This demonstration proposes an adaptive DSS (Decision Support System) on the basis of adaptivity to Climate change via a risk management framework. The solution uses reliable data from Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) and other sources of uncertainties. With such combination, we can provide a framework that ensures robustness and real-time capabilities, immediately and long-term. Pavement at freezing temperatures exposed to warmer air over an extended period of time deteriorates and ultimately produces potholes. Streaming this type of information into decision-support tools is at the core of our solution.

Underground capsule pipeline logistic system – From a feasibility study and LEGO-model to a full-scale pilot installation in a city

Organised by: Omniloop, Varberg, Sweden


Description: An underground capsule pipeline logistic system is proposed for moving and storing everything that fits into a capsule with a diameter of 300 mm and a length of 500 mm, e.g., groceries, hot food, packages, letters, newspapers, personal items, and waste. Transport the last/first/mile/yard all the way to/from the user in apartments and at workplaces. Storing at specified temperatures in the pipes, reducing the need for storage space in buildings and enabling automatic retailing. This gives access to most items and services in a city district within 5 minutes. The feasibility study TRA paper nr 852 is displayed in the poster area. In one scenario, 30% less motor vehicle traffic and emission of carbon, particles, and noise compared with today. The payback time was one year, and the value of the freed street space was higher than the total investment cost. Circular flows with reusable packaging, cleaning, refurbishing, second-hand, borrowing, sharing, and recycling are made easier. Transport and storage services are preferable offered as a utility where the pipes are co-located with other utility infrastructures as water, sewage, gas, electricity, and fiber. Come and discuss how we together can establish a cluster of actors for taking the concept from a LEGO-model to a full-scale pilot installation in a city. We are working on a € 3 Million application for the EU-call Driving Urban Transition with deadline November 21.
