The call "Safe and sustainable use of small vehicles using digital technology" closed May 3. Seven projects were granted financial support and the work is up and running. Below is a list of the projects and via the links you can read about each project.
Safe and sustainable use of small vehicles using digital technology
Smaller vehicles have the potential to reduce congestion in the transport system and new types are constantly reaching the market. By small vehicles we mean smaller road vehicles that may only be driven at low speeds.
Purpose of the announcement
This call finances projects leading to a safer and increased use of small vehicles driven at low speeds with the help of digitalisation. Small vehicles includes for example, electric scooters, various types of cargo bikes, bicycles, electric mopeds, smaller electric four-wheeled vehicles, electric skateboards and delivery robots. The common focus for the projects is that they investigate how digital technology can be used to achieve a smarter, safer and more sustainable use of small vehicles.
