Digitalization and automated transport systems can create value for societies. And we need spatial 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.
