LOCATION

The demo in Sweden will be held in Kista and the city of Linköping. Kista Science City is a world leading ICT innovation eco-system and cluster with Ericsson’s headquarter. Around 1000 companies are located here, of which 400 in the ICT sector and two university satellites (Stockholm University and Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm district. The newly established Vallastaden neighbourhood of Linköping, including Mjärdevi Science Park with Ericsson, Combitech and 370 more companies, features sustainable construction with a clear focus on fossil-free transport with Sunfleet™ car pool, electric bike pool, cargo bike pool and priority for walking and cyclists.

OVERVIEW

The innovation of the Mega site in Sweden is a 5G control tower concept that can remote monitor and tele-operate a fleet of vehicles on the Kista and Linköpings sites.

In the demo, a separate on-demand service will integrated in AV-fleet set-up in Kista and operation of integrated platform for optimisation of transport systems (including AV) in Linköping, interfaced also to various MaaS schemes. Three autonomous shuttles will be used in Kista, in Linköping two autonomous shuttles (by NAVYA) and one autonomous vehicle will be deployed.

The target is to prove a robust, safe and reliable operation of a fleet of electrical autonomous vehicles with the 5G control tower that enables removal of operators in vehicles, which is a requirement for a commercial use of AVs in public transport.

SPEED

<20km/h (Linköping Vallastaden, Kista)

AUTOMATION LEVEL

4 (all vehicles)

USER GROUPS

User groups include commuters, residents and tourists. The passenger stations themselves will be adapted for all-access use (elderly, PRM). In Linköping, there is both a school, with a unit for children with special needs, and an elderly residential care facility.
