LLB Buses, Devices & Data

A fleet of Linkker electric buses equipped with LLB technology are running in normal operation in Helsinki. The buses have:

  • basic LLB on-board setup that provides access to power, 4G connectivity, data collection from LLB sensors, bus display system as well as limited amount of computing resources for 3rd party applications;
  • 3rd party hosting that allows 3rd parties to bring their own hardware and software solutions to the buses and utilize the LLB on-board setup.

It should be noted that LLB does not oblige 3rd parties to provide access to their solutions (e.g., providing data through the LLB open APIs) although it is encouraged whenever possible.

The Living Lab Buses, the main devices installed in them as well as the available data is listed in the table below. For access to data, see the –> developer portal <–.
