Future mobility for and by the people

One of the projects that recently concluded its work is AHA – A Human Approach. This human-centered project has worked with an open mind-set while gathering cities and authorities, industry and of course the people, enabling them to develop a method to create a common agenda. It is true public engagement and an important tool for society planning and industry. And it also lies the foundation for the newly started AHA II.

Unique demonstration of autonomous bus
13 November 2019
The potential an autonomous bus can have in a bus depot was demonstrated on November 12 by Volvo Buses and Keolis. An electric and autonomous bus then drove itself between different stations a bus needs to visit in the depot between the shifts. The demonstration is one of the first in the world and represents an important step on the road to more autonomous vehicles as well as safer, cleaner and more efficient public transport.
Increased focus on policy development
26 September 2019
As new technology and services constantly move forward the need for innovation within policy and regulation becomes increasingly important. If the legal framework is having a hard time keeping up with the rapid changes great innovation might be halted or even stopped. As a result of this, Drive Sweden has named policy development as one of the program's thematic areas. Further plans for this will be presented shortly. An actor that will be involved in this area is KOMET, an initiative from the Swedish government to create a better and more in-sync playingfield for innovation, with focus on policy development.
