Live in Sydney!

 

On Sunday, the 26th November, The B-Line was inaugurated in Sydney, Australia.

The B-Line is a brand new line of 40 double-decker buses servicing between the North Beaches and the city centre, while traveling over the famous Harbour Bridge and past the world renowned Opera House. This line is the first one in Sydney to be equipped with a real-time system where passengers are informed via Public Information Display (PID) onboard the buses as well as PIDs at the stop points. The real-time information is also exported to Google’s GTFS. The ambition is for Sydney and Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) to expand with more lines in the near future.

“It’s thrilling and exciting to have been trusted for this project, and I am extremely proud of our team for the work and effort provided so we could manage this project under such a short time. The customers’ response has been both professional and positive, so we are really looking forward to further business opportunities in Australia“,

It’s not all about driverless vehicles. This is a completely new approach to mobility. We are on the threshold of a radical shift, and it’s happening fast. In just a few years the world will change. We will see entirely new mobility business models enabling sustainable cities.

More people in a limited area means increased congestion and other negative impacts on our society and the environment. These are but a few of the reasons behind a rapidly increasing interest in automated transport systems.

Automated transport systems include, essentially, all forms of transportation – private journeys, public transport and freight transportation. You order a driverless vehicle when you need one, perhaps for a convenient connection to public transport. On reaching your destination the vehicle continues on to pick up the next traveler. Various modes of transport are seamlessly mixed to provide an optimal journey.

New, smart solutions also enable flexible goods deliveries in cities. Large areas that are currently used for parking will become available for activities that contribute to increased quality of life. In parallel, the transportation sector will change its focus from products to services. This will open up for new business models and diminish differences between people.

Sweden has an automotive industry that is at the cutting edge in terms of safety and care for the environment. We have world leading information technology and telecom companies. And we have a tradition of systems thinking and excellent collaboration between industry, academia and government.

Drive Sweden is a Strategic Innovation Program launched by the Swedish government that gathers the best in the area – from all sectors of society. We work closely together to make optimal use of all possibilities, but also to address the challenges that could arise along the way. This could pertain to road safety, adaptation of infrastructure and legislation that needs updating.

The Drive Sweden innovation program started in the spring of 2015. It is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency, the Swedish Research Council Formas and Sweden’s innovation agency VINNOVALindholmen Science Park is the host for the program.
