DriveX - Prestudy
|Coordinator||ARTHUR D. LITTLE AKTIEBOLAG - ARTHUR D. LITTLE AKTIEBOLAG, Stockholm|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 698 000|
|Project duration||December 2018 - April 2019|
Purpose and goal
The pre-study has mapped local mobility ecosystems in Singapore and Dubai, and confirmed that both markets’ relative strengths and development areas are complementary to those in Sweden. The conclusions enabled the project to tailor a modular pilot project to be presented at the ITS World Congress in Singapore and the final of the Autonomous Driving Challenge in Dubai, both in October 2019. The pilot includes integrated offers from eight members of Drive Sweden, and its relevance has been confirmed by key actors in respective local market (LTA in Singapore and RTA in Dubai).
Expected results and effects
The pre-study´s outcome is very positive. During the study, some ten additional organizations have expressed interest in participating in future work. As the pilot´s design emphasizes openness and ecosystem integration, it is feasible and straightforward to involve additional actors, which also further strengthens the pilot. In order to ensure realisation of sought targets for DriveX, it is now critical to secure financing of phase 1, so that involved actors who stand ready for the pilot (and have mobilised local customers and partners) may to strike while the iron is hot.
Planned approach and implementation
The pre-study has detailed "the Swedish innovation model" and objectives for its export, mapped relevant aspects of local conditions, as well as developed a model and implementation plan for a pilot study. The pilot study was documented and anchored with relevant parties in Sweden and in Dubai and Singapore (which were pre-selected target markets). Involved players are now ready to implement the pilot and have mobilized local customers and partners for the purpose.
