Purpose and goal

The overall aim was to promote sustainable urban development and Lund municipality´s objective for climate neutrality in 2030 with reduced private cars, by exploring how autonomous shared transport services could be part of a sustainable mobility system. The project´s sub-goal was a collaboration platform for implementation, documented use cases with an overall description of technical, business and user considerations and proposal for funding for implementation. The project did not get together a constellation to implement a pilot with, but many lessons learned.

Expected effects and result

The project brought together actors who normally compete, and increased knowledge about level 4 autonomy in different formats and its importance for urban planning and public transport. The lessons learned about the difficulty of getting different societal actors on board can facilitate future work with system change. The current missions of the societal actors, the need for goal alignment and the need to increase understanding of the impact of autonomous vehicles on a sustainable mobility systems are the obstacles that have been identified and still need to be changed or overcome.

Planned approach and implementation

The project was planned based on a concrete implementation of knowledge acquisition, conceptualization and feedback from residents, companies and researchers. Unfortunately, the project got stuck in the existing actor roles and power structures, and underestimated the prevailing actor politics. One lesson learned is that the project should have made more room among the societal actors before implementation to avoid this. It could be done by working on several political levels in parallel, so as not to get caught up in the influence of individuals.
