Status Ongoing
Venture Strategic Innovation Program Drive Sweden
Call Strategic innovation program Drive Sweden - Safe and sustainable use of small vehicles using digital technology

Purpose and goal

This project aims to test a data-based and user-centered approach to reach an increased, more effective, safer, and attractive use of micromobility in Swedish municipalities. To this end, the project approach builds upon stakeholder cooperation and user dialogues to increase the usage of enhanced micromobility data services and thoughtful regulation for aligning public benefit and private profit.

Expected effects and result

The project aims to contribute to more sustainable means of transport by using bicycles, electric scooters, and other smaller vehicles under the micromobility category. The main contribution includes facilitating cooperation among micromobility stakeholders through e.g. proposing and testing data-sharing methods, identifying perpetual barriers to the use of micromobility, generating direct value for citizens, improving the safety of use, and fostering municipalities´ readiness to respond to the changes in the micromobility sector.

Planned approach and implementation

The project consists of three main research work packages and one coordinating work package to explore the different needs of the municipalities, the operators, and the users. In the first work package, an overall understanding of data needs from different stakeholders will be mapped and discussed in workshops. For work package two, the data needs of the users will be addressed and the project will run an experiment together with the Trollhättan municipality. Work package three is about policy and standard that enables easier use and regulation of micromobility for the municipalities.
