Programme Swedish National ITS Conference 2017

27th September – all will be in English

Registration 0900-0930

Opening 0930-1030

Keynote speakers:

This year we are happy to welcome some very influential key note speakers representing important actors as well in the ICT as in the ITS world and with impact on ordinary peoples life as well in society. They have impact on the transportation market as a whole towards a sustainable society. We also will have a glimpse from UK and their development with possibility to exchange information and learn from each other.

1030-1200 Connected and Automated Driving

After years of talks, planning and smaller tests we today face a society aiming for as well fossil free transportation as a more safety related driving all over the countries in our world. The view on mobility will change over time and will give a potential of efficiencies in transportation according to many sources.

In Sweden we also do the work which today has ended up in a strategic innovation program – a SIP – for next generation transportation including both connected autonomous driving as shared vehicle use and services. The program behind is sponsored via Vinnova, Swedish Energy Agency and Formas, and canalised by Drive Sweden. Furthermore there are similar programs for Smart Cities Challenge from Sweden all supporting each other.

1200-1300 Lunch

1300-1355 Connected and Automated Driving

The theme continuous with collaborative projects and a sum up.

  • Nordic and European Cooperation: A talk between representatives from Finland and Sweden
  • Nordic Way, data sharing, business model etc. between countries
  • Experiences from Estonia, Finland and Sweden
  • Experiences from some of the sites in Tammerfors, Esbo and Helsinki
  • Whats going on in Estonia? Innovative solutions in the legislation
  • The Netherlands road to autonomous and connected vehicles,
  • Sum up: A discussion with some of the actors and the role they represent, what is missing and how to meet challenges.

1405-1600 Sustainable Mobility as a Service

Cities stand today for a growing environmental burden by over 70 percent of global carbon emissions. Now, when countries after climate deal in Paris have to define and implement the measures required to fulfil their promises are the cities extremely important. One of the biggest challenges is to limit emissions from traffic and the transport system and that they are developed to simplify the journey for Traveller whether municipalities, county councils, the Trafikverket is responsible for their part of the system.  One way to meet these challenges is through the application of new mobility services in conjunction with a fossil-free development.

Trafikverket (Liikennevirasto) in Finland states: Mobility is becoming a service (Mobility as a Service, MaaS), where the whole transport system is user- and service-oriented. Simply explained, when mobility is offered as a service, passengers get the transport services that they need, travelling doorstep to doorstep, with only one ticket and fare. There is seamless interoperability between different modes of transport, and since all data moves with the passengers and the logistics in a smooth transmission between transport modes, passengers have the flexibility to change their plans during the trip.

The role of the Finnish Transport Agency is to enable a MaaS ecosystem, to remove obstacles and support interoperability. The actual mobility services will mainly be offered by various companies. By opening our available data and making it accessible to all, we are enabling the creation of new services, innovations and business opportunities. This development is taking place by gathering and allowing public transport (route and real-time) data to be openly used and by promoting new interoperable payment systems. We will maintain an active dialogue with all those participating in the MaaS operator activities and, among other things, discuss whether common interface standards will be needed in the operations.

During two hours we will listen to what´s on right now. It is about the Strategic Innovation Program – next generation trips – where a roadmap is on the table produced thanks to many actors and their willingness to cooperate according to that. We will also get a Global view of trends within this topic, a talk about what we really mean with sustainable and some examples from cities about the urban developing plans. The will also be a participation from Finland.

0900-1030 Multi Modal Transport Corridors in EU    

President Junker mentioned some years ago ‘Jobs, Growth and Investment’ and ‘A Connected Digital Single Market’ as the first two priorities for EU policy. The goal is to foster growth, competiveness, jobs and the internal market, in particular through making better use of the opportunities offered by digital technologies. Specifically in the transport sector, such tools could improve the use of existing resources and the daily life of citizens.

The Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor is a crucial north-south axis for the European economy. Crossing the Baltic Sea from Finland to Sweden and passing through Germany, the Alps and Italy, it links the major urban centres and ports of Scandinavia and Northern Germany to continue to the industrialised high production centres of Southern Germany, Austria and Northern Italy further to the Italian ports and Valletta.

I denna session kommer att presenteras erfarenheter och vad man kan lära av arbeten för två stora initiativ. Det är dels om transportkorridorer genom Europa, den s.k. Scan-Med korridoren dels om erfarenheterna från Östersjöområdet med STM – trafikledning till sjöss. Fokus är i huvudsak godsets väg på järnväg, fartyg och på väg, hur det byter trafikslag och hur olika informationer sker mellan de olika aktörerna. Vi kommer att få höra om såväl utmaningar som vunna erfarenheter och hur samarbeten är förutsättningar. Som ofta är information om var godset finns, vart det ska, när det anländer till bytespunkt för att transportområdet ska.

Visionen för STM uttrycks på följande sätt: Transparency leads to better overall decisions resulting in increased efficiency and, in the maritime industry, improved safety as well. Imagine a world where all the information you need is at your fingertips, updated in real-time. And where most information does not have to be entered manually but is collected from various data sources.

1100-1230 What to learn from Aviation

Scope: Flygområdet har under många år arbetat för att öka säkerhet såväl i luften som på marken, onödiga väntetider samt också effektivisera trafikledning och målinriktat med hållbarhetsfrågor. Ett arbete som också influerar andra trafikslag.

Samtidigt har flygplatserna blivit attraktiva mötes- och bytesplatser med alla trafikslag involverade och service för att möte resenärernas behov. Till detta kommer också flygplatsen som en köpplats, konferens plats, arbetsplats för all den service som omger flygplatsen, många anställda.

1230-1330 Lunch

1330-1430 We should be world leader. How do we achieve that?

There is a great ambition to put Sweden on the top position when it is about digitalization, autonomous driving, new mobility services. Will we succeed? Are there many or to many obstacles?
