New innovation risk to not be used or to be delayed due to old regulations. New digital mobility solutions are pushing all kinds of legal systems to change, adapt, clarify and make new definitions. Therefore, Drive Sweden aims to be a platform for stakeholder collaboration around the development of policies and regulations for new cooperative, connected and automated mobility solutions.
The legal framework addressing mobility and connected services is not always as up to date as the technology, nor as fast-moving. The transport applications affected by regulatory innovation are very broad. The examples are many in car sharing, privacy issues that affect both Control Towers and today's services such as car hire, and self-driving and driverless systems. Smart and integrated supporting services need to be introduced and policies supporting e.g. the necessary sharing of data must be implemented.
In an effort to tie innovation and regulation closer together, Drive Sweden is working actively with the policy lab concept. Concrete results are available from the KRABAT project and the thematic area works continously to facilitate for stakeholders to collaborate and identify regulatory bottlenecks.
Important in this matter is the European and international outlook. Without this, the output of innovation within mobility might be halted. That is why we stay updated and involved in a lot of international collaboration.
