Bok, 1987

This publication, which is redated by of a report from the Department of Transportation at the Chalmers University of Technology was a cooperation with the department for disabled/handicapped at Gothenburg University ("Handikapssforskingen" in Swedish). It comprises a number of (real-life) experiments conducted at the laboratory at Chalmers (this on a cut-down and modified automobile body (one of the authours scraped personal automobile).

A comment: As was the praxis during this (early) period of time at Chalmers University of Technology, as well as probably at some other universities. This means that frequent and vast academic publication by means of e.g. conference papers and refereed contributions to scientific journals was almost unheard of. At least so for some of the applied science disciplines (today are the situation indeed very different), That is, earlier was the publication in many respects focused on trying to satisfy the executive administrator the research foundation in question. However, various more public (easily accessible) initiatives to publish was judged as being important.
