Purpose and goal
The goal for the conducted pre-study has been to identify regional and urban functions, flows and nodes (cases) with possibilities for efficiency through automated logistics services, and with involved actors willing to participate in R&D projects for further investigation and realization. Ten project ideas together with actor constellation, need for new technology, efficiency potential and suggested next steps has been identified, out of which one has already been elaborated into a project proposal to Drive Sweden.
Expected results and effects
Main contributions from the pre-study: State-of-the-art description (related projects, enabling technology) Identification of cases with possible demonstrations, including description of efficiency potential through automation and connectivity; identified benefits and market development; enabling technology; necessary actors/actor constellation and suggestions for next steps.
Planned approach and implementation
The pre-study has been conducted through three main work packages: WP1 Coordination, WP2 System study, WP3 Plan for demonstration project. The main procedure for WP2 has been workshops, interviews with e.g. transport buyers and technology providers and state-of-the-art description. Based on WP2 a gross list with project ideas was produced, that was further analysed by the project group and from which 10 project ideas with a clear stakeholder interest has been further elaborated. The developed project ideas is the main delivery from WP3, and the project as a whole.
