Policy development

Fyra personer samarbetar vid bord

New innovations and technology risk not being used or being delayed due to outdated regulations. But new solutions for the mobility of the future push all types of regulations to be changed, adapted, clarified and new definitions created. The regulations around mobility, infrastructure and connected services are not always as updated or rapidly developed as the technology. The transport solutions that require the regulations to be updated are by their very nature very broad. The examples are many within, among other things, car sharing and privacy issues, and it affects e.g. car rental as well as self-driving and driverless systems. Smart and integrated support services must be developed, just as policies that support, for example, the necessary sharing of data must be implemented.

Important in this area are the European and international contexts. Without development and transparency in these, the implementation of new innovations in mobility may suffer. That's why we stay up-to-date and actively involved in various international collaborations.

How Drive Sweden works with Policy Lab

Drive Sweden is a platform for collaboration between different stakeholders specifically around the development of policies and regulations.

In the Drive Sweden Policy Lab, innovation and regulatory development are linked closer together, which facilitates cooperation between different stakeholders. Policy Lab identifies concrete bottlenecks linked to regulations and produces proposals for measures in broad cooperation.
 

The purpose of the lab is to explore how technology and service development relate to the existing legal space for the new mobility services that are developed within Drive Sweden's project portfolio.

The work in the Policy Lab consists of three parts:

  • To assist two to three other ongoing projects within Drive Sweden's area of interest with policy and regulatory innovation. Which projects are to be offered policy and regulatory innovation is determined in consultation with the Drive Sweden program office based on the program's priorities.
     
  • To synthesize experiences from the policy lab within Drive Sweden's project to transform experiences and insights from individual cases into general advice and measures. An example of that work is policy development around how work in garages and depots is affected by self-driving vehicles.
     
  • To contribute with environmental monitoring of ongoing projects identified as above regarding the introduction of new technology and services within Drive Sweden's area of interest. The monitoring of the environment is linked to the specific cases investigated in the policy lab.

Drive Sweden Policy Lab works with specific cases from Drive Sweden projects. In 2020, additional funding was granted, until August 2022, to investigate another case, focusing on the conditions for collaborative data in logistics flows.

How Drive Sweden's Network Automated Driving Regulations works

International and EU rules for automated driving are changing significantly at the moment. Network AD regulation brings together companies and Swedish authorities to, together with legal excellence, study in depth the new issues that arise. Quarterly roundtable discussions with a broad partner group offer a neutral forum for following developments and possible dialogue, exchange of experience and knowledge between industry and the authorities.
