A digital marketplace for transporting people and goods in urban and rural areas

Reference number
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration April 2018 - January 2019
Status Completed
Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation

Important results from the project

We have: *Created a consortium and ensured that there is great interest in the innovation from municipalities and in industry. *Verified our hypotheses and started work on a lab platform. *Tested the idea, conducted advocacy work and set up a website. * Identified that the solution can handle self-driving vehicles. * Been able to state that our institutional invention has great potential to be used for a conversion of local and regional transport systems on a global scale.

Expected long term effects

The effects depend on the extent to which the solution is implemented. Fully implemented, the effect can be extremely large, as a dramatically reduced climate impact, no serious queuing and increased traffic fairness. In sparsely populated areas, service levels can be raised and, in densely populated areas, where alternative modes of transport are available, fairness can be created through varying pricing on the use of road instead of petrol taxes.

Approach and implementation

The work has been carried out through recurrent workshops with the project group and contacts with potential data suppliers stakeholders and financiers. Analyzes of data supply in the region of Norrbotten, the relation between cost and queue formation and of internationally leading projects with the ambition to manage the growing challenges of the transport sector with data analytics have been carried out.
