Test Site Stockholm

Test Site Stockholm, together with its partners, set out to test and demonstrate sustainable mobility in Stockholm.

A shared vision

A city where people are at the heart of an inclusive sustainable transportation system.

Why

With the ever-increasing size of urban areas, the increasing congestion in our cities, and the pollution that reduces our quality of life, a new transportation system is required - one that will be flexible and safe for the users, sustainable for the society, and efficient for our every day lives. These conditions can be met by introducing a shared, connected, and automated mobility paradigm in our cities. Through building the environment we can understand how all components interact together.

Approach

To make a step towards that vision in the city of Stockholm, a place to develop, test and evaluate new ideas and technologies was needed. Test Site Stockholm was exactly that. A place where all partners met, worked together, and created a space in which new ideas could arise for the integration of innovative concepts and ideas that will enable us to build a unified system for connected and shared mobility.

How

Test Site Stockholm:

  • A collaborative effort aimed at the cross-fertilization of projects,
  • An environment for the testing and assessment of technologies,
  • An environment for tests and evaluations from society, user, and business perspectives,
  • A platform for policy and infrastructure dialogues
  • A knowledge base, about transport systems with shared, automated, connected vehicles
  • A (distributed) test site that is open to research, with ”connectivity” and IT-infrastructure available

Together with 

Structure

Through international collaborations that created a common framework for future transportation, Test Site Stockholm aimed at creating a modular architecture that enabled the design of a flexible system. It promoted the discussion for new policies and legislations that enable these new concepts to be broadly used. Finally, it further advanced the state-of-the-art by investigating missing knowledge and links for future development.
