Society planning

Digitalisation and automated transport systems can create value for societies. And we need society planning processes that enable the development and upscaling of the mobility of the future. In our push against rethinking and reaching new visions for mobility we are working for a deeper connection between public and private stakeholders.

Drive Sweden can provide the means to engage stakeholders in the planning for sustainable societies and enable new technology, products and services related to connected and automated transport systems. We can facilitate the necessary transfer of knowledge to learn more about the societal effects and needs connected to the implementation of future mobility solutions.

Drive Sweden has run a few strategic projects in the past related to the theme, which concerned future scenarios for self-driving vehicles in Sweden, co-creation labs and participatory innovation methodologies based on human-centric research. Now is the time to learn from the experiences of these projects and create a systematic approach towards engaging cities and authorities in the discussion on how connected and automated transport systems can increase sustainability, be part of new mobility solutions and improve the everyday lives of our citizens.

Our scope includes the challenges of safety, congestion, air pollution and CO2 and explores how the use of digitalisation, automation and shared services can contribute to design attractive city environments and effective transport systems. In order to make this happen we want to increase the collaboration between the public and private sectors as well as academia.

Drive Sweden is able, like few others, to provide input in the process of this developing field through knowhow, networking, new technologies, simulations, future business models and services and insights from user-involved studies. Simply put, we leave no stone unturned.

Ongoing projects


  • Security for autonomous vehicles from a societal and safety perspective Read more

    The digitalisation of society, for the most part, means a very positive development in society. In the area of mobility, smart connected vehicles can contribute to more sustainable and efficient transport systems that can also meet the needs of the individual.

Completed projects


  • ART Read more

    The project aims to investigate and analyze current trends and conditions for semi-automated and/or fully automated trucks and robots in urban environments within the waste and recycling area for operations in Sweden and other Europe.

  • Autonomous transport system Read more

    If autonomous vehicles should have a future role in urban environments, technology and technology systems need to provide a clear value to the users, in this case both for cities and its residents. Autonomous vehicles must become a resource for the city and create value in the urban environment.

  • Methods and measures for evaluating an automated transport system Read more

    The automation of the transport system can bring great benefits, such as increased safety, improved efficiency, less environmental impact, improved accessibility and convenience. In order to evaluate and manage these initiatives so that they benefit society in general, measurement methods are needed that are capable of evaluating the transport system from several different perspectives.

  • Plan for central Gothenburg Read more

    The development of self-driving vehicles goes very fast and systems that under certain conditions support autonomous driving will soon be ready for a market introduction, with effects on an overall community level.

  • SEVS for AD Read more

    What is the impact of the automated transport system on the society? Which automated solutions can contribute to a more sustainable transport system? We need to develop methods for measuring and understand different automated solutions, in order to evaluate the benefits of different stakeholders and to be able to take the direction towards the goals.
