You cruise along silently in a driverless car running on hydrogen and owned by the carpool. This could be the reality of future mobility – the way people and goods are transported. Mobility is a prerequisite for an urban society, with challenges in terms of environmental impact, congestion, time and cost. Research is focusing on new fossil-free vehicles, autonomous technology, and new forms of ridesharing instead of vehicle ownership. These parallel developments will result in immense changes to society and business over the coming decades.
RISE helps customers to make knowledge-based decisions in the face of this major transition. We actively generate knowledge through applied research, tests with users in their normal environments, technology testing in our own test facilities, and the transfer of knowledge to business and society. Laws and regulations are adapted to today’s transport system and, in many ways, can hinder new solutions. RISE works with authorities on regulation innovation in order to understand which changes are needed.
