About the electric buses
Better urban enviroment through geofencing
17 December 2021
Gothenburg is at the forefront when it comes to testing geofencing in traffic. The technology makes it possible to digitally regulate the speed, emissions and access of connected vehicles to special zones and has been tested within the framework of ElectriCity.
Improved urban environment one year after the launch of 145 electric buses
16 December 2021
One year ago 145 new electric buses were introduced in Gothenburg, Mölndal and Partille and the climate-related and environmental benefits have now been examined. And the positive results are clear. A halving of nitrogen dioxide emissions and a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 10 percent are some of the positive effects that electrification has led to during the past year. The nitrogen dioxide savings correspond to the annual emissions from just over 8,000 average cars.
Passengers positive about autonomous buses - unique study shows
16 November 2021
In a unique study, passengers' experiences and thoughts about autonomous buses have been examined and the results show that many are positive about the new technology. The study is the first to be done with a full-length bus and is in part funded through ElectryCity.
Electric Worksite begins testing electric construction machines in Gothenburg
24 September 2021
The testing of electric work machines within the Electric Worksite project are now underway. In September, the tests began with an electric compact crawler excavator and an electric compact wheel loader in Färjenäsparken in Gothenburg, where the City Park and Nature Administration is constructing a park by the Göta Älv. In the near future, more tests will follow in urban environments, as a first step in a large system demonstration. Everything from the logistics around the machines to the actual maneuvering and power supply issues, will be tested to get important data for larger demonstrations in the future.
New tests on electric buses within the ElectriCity collaboration
12 July 2021
After the successful tests on ElectriCity's demonstration arena on route 55 and EL16 in Gothenburg, the collaboration is now starting a new test bed for electric buses. The purpose is to accelerate innovation for public transport through tests in real urban traffic environments.
New cooperation electrifies construction sites in western Sweden
22 June 2021
In a new ElectriCity project, several big actors are now taking concrete steps to electrify construction sites. With a focus on, among other things, building and construction projects and street maintenance, they will test how electric work machines can work in real environments in Gothenburg. Electrification in the sector is a central part of the adjustment required to achieve important environmental and climate goals.
Determined to accelerate the change to a fully electric, climate-neutral future
3 June 2021
When Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar's CEO, visited Lindholmen Connected, he talked about both his vision for future mobility and Polestar's journey as a company and brand. Innovation and passion are important elements when looking ahead to create the first truly climate-neutral car by 2030.
5G in autonomous shuttles enables important developments
20 April 2021
The autonomous shuttles in Drive Sweden project S3, that can be seen on route 56 in Gothenburg, have been updated with 5G technology. This enhances their connection with the so called control towers and marks an important step for a greater introduction of autonomous vehicles in public transport.
Routes 55 and EL16 comes to a stop - but ElectriCity keeps on going
11 December 2020
The demonstration arena for route 55 and EL16 comes to an end in December. After five years, the two test routes for electrified bus traffic are ready to pass on the torch to electric buses in regular traffic.
Great results from RIVSILON pilots on IT for public transport
16 October 2020
Since 2018 the RIVSILON project has been a part of the ElectriCity collaboration. By using ITxPT specifications a series of pilots and test have been carried out in order for, among other things, plug and play solutions for the IT systems to work, enabling different systems to work together. After successful results, new services have been developed and here you can take part of ITxPT's case study from the project.
