Purpose and goal
The project aims to develop models for multifunctional streets that can be used in redevelopment and new construction, and which meet challenges with urbanization, digitalisation, electrification, segregation and climate change. The objective is to develop: - knowledge and experience of the diversity and technical functionality of street types, - models and type solutions for smart streets, - a street function index and evaluation of the sustainability of streets - a VR simulator for model streets, and workshops where the simulator is tested - a design guide for smart streets.
Expected results and effects
The project results are in accordance with the project goals, not least in terms of new knowledge about street functionality and technical performance; Swedish and international street policy; trends, innovations and scenarios for the streets of the future and models and type solutions for streets that meet various challenges. The project has also produced a VR simulator for studies of model streets, and a design guide for planning and design of smart streets based on the other results. The project´s knowledge has been tested and evaluated in three test bed streets in Stockholm.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been carried out as a number of work packages and reported successively on the project´s blog and website between 2019-2022. The work has been co-created with a number of project actors and a broad reference group consisting of researchers, experts and practitioners from a number of knowledge areas linked to the planning and design of smart streets. The work has taken place through interviews, literature compilations, design work, modeling, workshops, test beds and through bench-marking with Swedish and international reference projects and contexts.
