Through the policy lab, Swedish players can increase their knowledge of how existing regulations support and hinder the market introduction of new technology and services within Drive Sweden's areas of interest. Together, we raise specific issues and solutions to existing challenges.
Within the framework of the project Drive Sweden Policy Lab 2021/22, we investigated five different cases:
Case 1 - Modern and simpler tax system for private car sharing
The purpose of case 1 is to increase knowledge about the taxation in the sharing economy, where private individuals rent out loose things, e.g. vehicles within the current regulations. We investigate and concretize the need for development of the tax regulations.
Case 2 - Bus cameras for society´s benefit
The purpose of case 2 is to sort out policy challenges of bus cameras to increase safety for the public and use and data for a more sustainable, more efficient and connected society.
Case 3 – traffic cameras for society´s benefit
The purpose of case 3 is to sort out policy challenges of traffic cameras to increase safety for the public and use and data for a more sustainable, more efficient and connected society.
Case 4 – Future traffic rules
This case identifies challenges, opportunities and solutions regarding current regulations for the design of traffic rules - how they are received by those who issue rules and by those who can benefit from machine-readable traffic regulations and the consequences of the alternatives.
Case 5 – Feasability study - regulatory sandbox car rental legislation
We want to lower the threshold for professional actors to share unused vehicles on evenings and weekends to reduce the need for their own car with private individuals. Through the policy lab methodology, we identify challenges, opportunities and solutions regarding the "car rental regulations".
During 2019/20, the Drive Sweden Policy Lab worked on three different regulatory challenges:
We have investigated which regulations apply to self-driving buses in a depot, i.e. how the bus must be self-certified, under the supervision of the Swedish Work Environment Authority regarding the machine directive or according to the trial regulation of the Swedish Transport Agency.
Furthermore, we have collected the needs and uncertainties of the authorities, technology suppliers and telecom operators regarding how vehicle sensors can contribute with data to benefit the society. Here, the technology suppliers would like to see a different model than the one that the telecom operators have vis-à-vis the authorities today.
In a further case, DSPL has investigated how data sharing can make the goods owners' transport more efficient based on a specific government assignment to the Swedish Transport Administration.
