Purpose and goal
The aim was to promote commuting by bicycle yearround and allow planning and controlling of cycling. Height safety, increased security combined with increased comfort allows easy decisions before and during the ride due to slip or obstacles on the route. Identification of accident for quickly alerting the emergency services. Realtime information and prediction of snow plowing and deicing. Facilitate ´green wave´ through the interaction between the flow images and infrastructure. Realtime information and prediction of traffic flows. Information on bike path´s mobility.
Results and expected effects
The project has identified needs and at the same time enabling an innovative aspect of future visions. Together we have developed a introduceable solution on system level which in stage two will result in a prototype. In cooperation with municipalities, the prototype is going to be tested on site. After SAT the prototype will be updated and improved. In the future, this will result in an innovative product or service that has not previously existed. The product will enable a more effective utilization of cycle commuting way which reduces environmental impact.
Approach and implementation
Project steering group, together with an external quality coordinator guided the technology group´s work. The technology group has consisted of specialists from each company. Meetings have been held with external pilot customers with good results. Interest in the project has been good and the response for future participation is great. By combining different parties in project excellence we cover in details in all technical areas. Combining software- and hardwareexperts along with urban planning releated to bicycling the possibilities increases to a successful outcome in step 2.
