Abstract
This study was initiated upon the request of Alberta Environmental Protection to investigate the relationship between all terrain vehicle (ATVs) and fire ignition within Alberta’s forests. The report summarizes the use of ATVs in Alberta and the specific causes of wildfires associated with these vehicles, describes fire history from 1990 to 2002, reports on other agencies’ strategies to lower the probability of ATV-caused fires in forested areas, and makes recommendations for Alberta.

Abstract
All-terrain vehicles (ATV's) can be used successfully to accomplish certain tacks in woodlot operations. These tasks include chemical spraying, hauling seedlings and wood products, transporting small equipment and providing transportation for the driver. ATV's are versatile, mobile, easy to transport and can travel on very soft ground. They require a special driving technique. The safety of ATV's is discussed in relation to the driver`s technique and to the ATV's handling limits which can be exceeds in certain operating conditions.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) (now FPInnovations) evaluated the potential for all terrain vehicles (ATVs) to ignite fires in certain types of wildland fuels. Researchers documented exhaust system temperatures, interviewed ATV riders about their riding habits, and inspected ATVs to identify where potentially flammable debris could accumulate on the vehicles.

Abstract
Have you heard about the driverless car developed by Google or Tesla? This one suggests that the day that the day when autonomous vehicles will be driving on our highways is not so far away. Robotization is everywhere is present everywhere and new technologies are available and available and implemented in various fields. The automated driving of industrial work vehicles is no exception. There has been a lot of progress in this field in recent years and already some sectors, such as sectors, such as agriculture and mining, have followed suit and and mining, have followed suit and deployed vehicles capable of performing a range of tasks on their own. FPInnovations is also interested the subject and a team of researchers is studying options for the options for the forestry sector.
Abstract
Avez-vous entendu parler de la voiture sans conducteur développée par Google ou par Tesla? Celle-ci laisse présager que le jour où des véhicules autonomes circuleront sur nos autoroutes n’est pas si loin. La robotisation est présente partout et de nouvelles technologies sont disponibles et implantées dans différents domaines. La conduite automatisée de véhicules de travail industriels ne fait pas exception. Il y a eu beaucoup de progrès dans ce domaine ces dernières années et déjà certains secteurs, comme l’agriculture et les mines, ont emboîté le pas et déployé des véhicules capables d’exécuter seuls un ensemble de tâches. FPInnovations s’intéresse également au sujet et une équipe de chercheurs étudie les options pour le secteur forestier.

Abstract
Over the past few years, the constant rise in the price of fuel has prompted the development of new technologies to reduce fuel consumption. To address this concern heavy equipment manufacturers have been introducing new models integrating technologies, such as the diesel-electric hybrid suggesting improved fuel efficiency. In order to validate these claims FPInnovations has developed a methodology aimed at conducting controlled tests to measure fuel consumption. Tests were conducted on three different models of bulldozers of the same power class in order to compare their fuel consumption and energy efficiency. The evaluation of these three bulldozers was carried out on a controlled test track where standardized working conditions were reproduced. This report presents the findings of these tests conducted in Chipman, New Brunswick, in cooperation with J.D. Irving Limited. The test had three main objectives: 1) develop a standardized procedure to measure the fuel consumption of the bulldozers in a controlled environment; 2) compare the fuel consumption of three different models (drive trains) of bulldozers (electric, hydrostatic and standard) for a typical work cycle; and 3) quantify the variation in fuel consumption resulting from the differences between the engine/drive train technologies of the test machines.

Abstract
In the fall of 2001, several cooperating organizations conducted full-scale stability and dynamic tests for a wide range of heavy vehicle configurations in British Columbia. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) facilitated the testing of six log hauling configurations. This report summarizes the rollover stability and dynamic performance of these configurations and compares their performance with two reference configurations (ship and tanker Super B-trains).
