CEVT AB – China Euro Vehicle Technology – Geely’s innovation and development centre in Sweden now joins the newly formed MobilityXlab at Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg, Sweden. “Together with the founding companies of MobilityXlab I am certain we can accomplish great innovations” Says CEVT CEO Mats Fagerhag.
Cutting edge research on sustainable urban mobility from an integrated perspective, will be on the agenda at the Integrated transport research lab (ITRL) Conference in June next year. Academia, research institutes, industry and public authorities are all welcome as the submission opens.
The conference hall sounded like a beehive as 650 participants gathered for the biggest Lindholmen Software Development Day to date. And busy bees they were, not only gathering new knowledge, but also sharing insights in an open network - which is key to the new digital industrial revolution.
SAFER’s International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention is the premiere international event on this topic and is designed to bring participants up-to-date on developments in this field. The theme will be 'Driver engagement during assisted driving'. The Scientific Committee welcomes abstracts from all modes of transport and from any relevant discipline. DDI2018 will be held in at Lindholmen Science Park.
The City of Stockholm is announcing an innovation contest, “Eccentric 2017”, whose aim is to encourage companies and organisations to present potential technological solutions that will help create the smart, accessible city of the future.
In an increasingly complex and digitalized sector, where automation, electro mobility and connected vehicles comprise the future, new requirements are being set in terms of work approaches. Which is why Autoliv, Ericsson, Volvo Cars, the Volvo Group and Zenuity opened MobilityXlab at Lindholmen Science Park today. The companies want to strengthen their positions at the forefront of a changing automotive industry with the aim of collaborating with start-ups to develop and demonstrate safer and more efficient transportation for tomorrow’s world.
Smarter and more sustainable solutions are the key features of the activities that Drive Sweden will lead on behalf of the government in “The next generation travel and transport” program – one of the five national innovation partnership programs. Many of Drive Sweden’s partners, including Volvo Cars, Volvo Buses, Nobina, RISE and the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology (KTH), will develop and test brand new ways of how we move around our cities, which could create real and tangible benefits to society.
Funding is available for research projects that want to use the AstaZero proving ground - meaning free access to the world’s first full-scale test environment for future road safety. Final submission date is September 29.
How is Sweden performing amid the competition in the development of mobility services? This was the focus of the Innovation Bazaar held at Lindholmen Science Park on September 7, where start-ups, established companies and researchers gathered to share experiences and forge new contacts.
