Drive Sweden Policy Lab 2021/22

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.

Policy lab, as an idea, has its origins in the question "Can you work with policy and regulatory development in a better way than today?"

Reality is becoming increasingly agile, complex and difficult to grasp, which means that new tools and methods need to be developed to meet and solve important societal challenges. Changes are also happening faster than traditional regulatory development. Accelerated technology development clashes with an existing system and regulations.

The purpose of the lab is to explore how technology and service development relates to the existing policies for future mobility services. How can we take advantage of the rapid technological development in a good way to create a more sustainable world?

The lab brings together a wide range of actors to solve bottlenecks for projects and innovations that are at the forefront. A collective approach is required where different actors work together to reach a solution.

Within the framework of the project Drive Sweden Policy Lab 2021/22, we investigate 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 legistlation

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".
