The business area brings together RISE’s expertise and unique testbeds in the field of transport and mobility. We offer applied research and testing for everything from mobility systems to materials engineering, from surface chemistry to machine learning, from research to testing and industrial product development. We also work with long-term strategies regarding skills development and system changes in transport and mobility.
Climate change and urbanisation are placing new demands on the sustainable, fossil-free and safe transport of people and goods. Now that more vehicles are connected, electric, autonomous and shared, established business models and user behaviours are also changing radically.
The business area focuses on five areas:
Energy and environment for mobility
Electromobility in focus – from battery-powered and hybrid systems, energy management and control, and charging infrastructure to new business models and user behaviours.
ICT for mobility
Electronics, software and communications facilitate innovation – as well as disruptive innovation – in the field of mobility. RISE works with virtually everything from EMC testing to machine learning and issues related to the system-of-systems.
Production and material technology
We develop and test new production methods and materials for resource-efficient and cost-effective manufacturing, processing, maintenance and material use.
Transport automation and safety
The area focuses on the development, simulation and testing of technologies and methods for active and passive road safety and autonomous driving.
How can passenger traffic and freight transport be made truly smart? The focus area works with everything from bike pooling to connected shipping.
