The projects - the source that makes Drive Sweden into a knowledge node, part 1

Thursday, November 16, 2023

Every year, Drive Sweden co-finances around twenty projects. The project results contribute to building new knowledge, insights and solutions and open up collaborations that contribute to increase the pace of a sustainable transport system. As part of being a knowledge node, Drive Sweden places great emphasis on documenting and making the project results available. Read more about this year's concluded projects.


Johan Mörk, Karolina Pamp, Felicia Hökars and Martin Prieto Beaulieu were some of those who presented their project results at the Drive Sweden Forum conference in September 2023.

The importance of digitalization in order to increase the circular flows of building materials
The project "Resource-efficient circular flows of construction materials supported by efficient data sharing" is about preparing tests of digititalization to minimize transportation of construction materials despite increased material fractions. The project is a prestudy with an ambition to take action in stage two.

Service shuttle
Our hypothesis has been that purchased travel services by taxi instead of company vehicles have a number of advantages -economically, ecologically and socially in a municipality. In this prestudy, we have tested the hypothesis and we have prepared a pilot project.

In most new residential areas today, a so-called mobility house is planned where various mobility services and the possibility of parking are to be offered. But it is often a challenge to make the economy around these places work together and to be able to adapt them to different needs.

New technology for evaluating the security effects of new infrastructure
This project is expected to help the City of Helsingborg and RISE understand how they can use data and new technologies to increase safety on Helsingborg's roads and make better infrastructure planning and policy work.

Voluntary industry agreement for the bus industry on geofencing
Can a shared and stated vision over technology change the industry standard for road safety and speed enforcement? To create the conditions for an industry agreement to use geofencing to achieve common climate, road safety and work environment goals.

Sustainable mobility as a work benefit
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is an important part to put in place to enable sustainable travelling. With this feasibility study, we wanted to sift through new business models, technical solutions and digital platforms to see how they can best interact with physical solutions and policy measures to stimulate increased use.

Prestudy: Roadmapp – a tool for goal-directed climate-smart mobility measures
The purpose of the project has been to verify the need for IT support for target management of climate-smart mobility measures in municipal roadmaps towards climate neutrality in 2030.

Cooperation on mobility for municipalities
Within the framework of the project called "Cooperation on mobility for municipalities", the ambition is to create a prototype for a network where representatives from municipalities meet in digital organized set ups to exchange experiences and discuss lessons learned about ongoing projects. The aim is to investigate how such a network needs to work in order to support in the best way. Better use of space: a digital marketplace for early-stage parking purchases
Parkcess is a digital tool, a marketplace, where buyers and sellers of access to parking spaces during the detailed planning and building permit stage can meet and share parking capacity.

REDIG: Regional Logistic Hubs in Gothenburg
REDIG intended to lay the foundations for a new, open and fossil-free logistics system for the event route in Gothenburg. The project also were a part of the Gothenburg Green City Zone. In this preliminary study, we analyzed logistics flows from a number of strategic actors and how a consolidation of goods could be carried out sustainably, commercially and with an improved environment in the area.
