Purpose and goal

This project will investigate the potential of future intelligent services within everyday commuting and the new configurations of transportation that are developing in relation to emerging sharing economies. The project aims at raising public awareness and engagement for how AV (Automated Vehicles) and MaaS (Mobility as a Service) can be part of city development and sustainable lifestyles.

Expected results and effects

The project will result in guidelines and planning tools for future city zones served by AV’s and mobility services. Bringing together diverse stakeholders of technology designers, urban planners, citizens and social researchers the project will create a transferable and scalable design anthropological approach to research, co-design and evaluation for future projects and will demonstrate how urban planning and technology development within the Drive Sweden framework can benefit from a user-centred service design approach.

Planned approach and implementation

This project project is designed as a Proof-of-Concept project to tailor and demonstrate a methodology that combines experimental prototyping and testing of intelligent services for urban development and autonomous vehicles, with participatory and human centred research. The core of the project lies in its potential to bring together new configurations of stakeholders that includes citizens, designers, social scientists, UX experts, and urban planners to ideate and design new digital and automated services in a series of joint workshops.
