Innovation Partnership Projects

Last year, the Swedish Government launched five new Innovation partnership programmes. Through this extra effort, Drive Sweden has been commissioned to host a number of projects to accelerate the development within the ‘Next generation travel and transport’-area.

  • LIMA Read more

    LIMA is a project at Lindholmen Science Park that will develop and test a smart, shared mobility service on a selected pilot group of 1000 people working at Lindholmen. All kinds of transport modes will be included in this combined mobility service, which will make trips to, from and during work, easier and more cost-effective.


    Self-driving, electric and shared vehicles have the potential to revolutionize the we may move around in our cities. If these technologies and concepts are deployed in a sensible way and with a societally framed system's perspective, it will have a substantial potential impacts, not only on the environment and traffic safety, but also on traffic efficiency and costs. Providing opportunities to citizens in Gothenburg and Stockholm to experience tomorrow's mobility, and to learn from these experiences, will enable Sweden to move on towards a broader, full-scale implementation.

  • KOMPIS Read more (Swe)

    The goal is a society that offers "combined mobility as a service", ie the ability to purchase your journeys or journeys from point to point. The means of transport range between e.g. autonomous vehicles, public transport, car pools and rental bikes and the common principle is shared transport, efficient energy utilization and smooth transitions. The change is radical and will require a cultural change, with shared mobility becoming the new norm, including shared car transport.

Strategic Projects

Projects created based on demand in one of Drive Sweden's priority areas.


  • Automated logistic services Read more

    To create conditions for sustainable urban and regional development there needs to be efficient transportation to, from and within cities and regions. By looking into different cases related to the handling of goods, collection of data and connection of goods, load carriers and vehicles, this pre-study aims to identify specific areas where efficiency could be improved by automation and also what other benefits automation can provide.

  • Data driven policy development Read more

    This project develops new methods for collecting and analyzing data, simulating/exploring policy options, using cloud infrastructure and integrating data services and tools, and involving stakeholders in policy work. 

  • Systems and services for mobility Read more

    This project will, within the context of Drive Sweden, implement a leading technology and service platform for connected cloud services supporting automated transport and mobility services. These services will be available for project partners and for interaction with new actors. The project will also, in cooperation with the other work streams, facilitate and drive development of services supporting connected vehicles and their traffic management.

Open Call Projects

Projects funded through one of Drive Sweden's open calls.


  • AD Aware Traffic Control - Emergency Vehicles Read more

    The project aims to further develop the AD Aware Traffic Control platform with automated cloudservices for sharing Emergency Vehicle information between AD Vehicles (i.e. VolvoCars DriveMe-cars) and Emergency Vehicle Coordinators (i.e. SOS Alarm).

  • Sustainable Mobility Systems Södertälje Read more

    The project aims to create and deploy mobility services, show scaling effects and develop business models. Show that mobility services can reduce the use of private cars.

  • Tunnll Read more

    Tunnll is a next-generation public transit technology. It transforms existing public transport bus
    services to smart mobility systems. 

Associated Projects

Here are some of the projects in which Drive Sweden partners participate.


  • i-GAME - Interoperable GCDC AutoMation Experience Read more

    The i-GAME project aims at raising the level for automated driving by more actively combining existing safety systems with car-to-car communication (V2V). The 3-year FP7 program, with roots in the "Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge" in 2011, will allow industry and research partners to collaborate on both a national and international level.

  • A-TEAM phase X

    A series of research projects focusing research into important future traffic safety scenarios, definition of methods that reflects these scenarios and test equipment that can make the methods possible to conduct. 

  • Born To Drive Read more

    The Born To Drive project will create new opportunities in terms of the logistics of newly manufactured cars. A vehicle is moved up to 30 times from the production line to arrival at the dealer. Each time, a driver currently needs to get into the car and drive to the next location. The Born To Drive project is developing a solution that will both guide the car to the right place at the right time as well as monitor the route to ensure no incidents occur. The aim is to demonstrate this in practice at a factory site in summer 2017. 

  • Drive Me Read more

    The Drive Me project focuses on studying potential benefits when automated vehicles are introduced on larger scale in the road transportation system. It is expected that rebuilt vehicles working as test probes with measuring equipment and test functionality for automated driving, will provide sufficient information/data to evaluate the possible benefits and effects on the research themes. These test probes will be put into a real traffic environment to collect data for analyses, modeling and quantification.

  • EDGAR System Read more

    The EDGAR system is a dynamic driverless vehicle system that has been developed in a co-creation process involving thousands of engineers around the globe. The first product generation - Edgar08 – is an autonomous upgradable minibus for 8 people, designed specifically for traveller needs in Berlin.


    The government has announced that FLOURISH, an Atkins led consortium, has won a multi-million pound research grant to fuel development in user-centric autonomous vehicle technology and connected transport systems. The new programme, co-funded by the UK’s innovation agency - Innovate UK, will focus on the core themes of connectivity, autonomy and customer interaction. The three year project, worth £5.5 million, seeks to develop products and services that maximise the benefits of Connected and Autonomous vehicles (CAVs) for users and transport authorities.

  • FUSE - FUnctional Safety and Evolvable architectures for autonomy Read more

    A research project within the Swedish FFI program to focus on system architectures and functional safety for autonomy. Functional safety considerations and the scalability and cost-efficiency of architectures represent potential blocking factors for introducing new autonomy functions.



    A research project dealing with topics in dynamic local and global maps as well as implications for ITS infrastructure such as roadside units.

  • Robot-based Autonomous Refuse handling Read more

    Students from three universities have collaborated with the Volvo Group and the waste recycling company, Renova. The result is a robot that automatically collects and empties refuse bins. A drone on the roof of the refuse truck scans the area and helps th

  • SMART - Simulation and Modelling of Autonomous Road Transport

    The aim of the project is to enhance and further develop todays state-of-the-art traffic models in order to enable analysis of future traffic systems. The project consists of two PhD projects, one focusing on microscopic traffic simulation and the behaviour of and interaction between conventional and automated vehicles, and one focusing on mesoscopic simulation and fleets of automated vehicles. The project is carried out by VTI, KTH and LiU and is funded by Trafikverket via Centre for Traffic Research (CTR).

  • VENTURER Read more

    VENTURER is a £5 million research and development programme aimed at investigating the barriers to the adoption of autonomous vehicles in the UK. The project, led by Atkins, is formed of 10 organisations spanning the public, private and academic sectors. VENTURER is an initiative part-funded by Innovate UK and members of the consortium.
