The projects - the source that makes Drive Sweden into a knowledge node, part 2

Wednesday, December 13, 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.

In this compilation, you get a final overview of which projects have finalized their results in 2023. By clicking on each headline, you can read about the projects, watch filmed presentations and read the final reports.

Preparation project Testbed AV Trollhättan
In a nine-month project, the City of Trollhättan, together with NEVS and AstaZero, is investigating how the process for testing autonomous vehicles on public roads can be made more efficient.

Roadmap for sustainable mobility solutions based on autonomous driving in a complex city environment
The project has investigated, defined and inventored the conditions for autonomous mobility. Among other things, it has examined what prerequisites are needed for the technology regarding regulations and policies, physical and digital infrastructure, business models and service design.

Roadmap Färingsö
By identifying and evaluating a number of sufficiently established technologies and services based on societal benefit, economy and environmental effects, including on demand public transport, the projects' ambitiona was to prepare for a subsequent pilot stage where we evaluate these together with travelers.

Digital platform
The cloud platform Drive Sweden Innovation Cloud is used as a base for several projects that have funding from Drive Sweden, for example, several pilot tests with connected self-driving vehicles and new mobility services have been completed. The platform and the pilot trials have attracted national and international interest.

Lessons learned from third-party sales
One of the conclusions of the LIMA report from 2021 is that public transport needs to be the backbone of a sustainable MaaS system (Marketing as a Service). Västtrafik introduced in March 2022 the possibility for private retailers to sell their tickets.

Planning for future infrastructure at mobility hubs in cold climate
The project created knowledge and developed processes that enabled rural areas close to urban areas to be provided with future-proof mobilityhubs that increased accessibility to local services and favored climate-smart travel behavior and freight transport.  

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.

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.

Demonstration of technology to identify the movement in a city
The project has developed a Crowd Analytics service for urban mobility. By combining and processing mobile data, map data, traffic data and demographic data, the service continuously follows the human movement in a city and can identify people's real needs for mobility in and to/from a city.
