Living Lab Bus – Innovations and Electricity

The Living Lab Bus project will showcase various solutions for passenger experience, energy efficiency and smart services at the 25th ITS World Congress in Copenhagen (17-21 September).

The demonstration will show Helsinki Region Transport’s (HSL) innovation platform featuring Linkker’s sustainable electric buses and quick charging with further efficiency and driving optimization solutions from EEE Innovations. Using buses as a mobile sensor platform is shown through Foreca’s enhanced weather forecast solutions and Vaisala’s visual road data collection as well as using LiDARs for automated driving by VTT. University of Tampere demonstrates co-creation opportunities with tools for service delivery and passenger feedback.
