TOWARDS INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT TOGETHER
Tampere City Region facilitates testing of new solutions and development for intelligent transport – on the other hand, as a city region, it benefits from solutions that improve the functionality, predictability, safety and efficiency of the transport system.
ITS Factory community has been established to make it all happen with public and private partnerships. See ITS Factory members →
The test environment a size of a city
Due to its compact size and number of inhabitants Tampere city area is an ideal environment for testing transport products and services. Agile and flexible decision-making and functional co-operation between the public and private sectors makes it a perfect test bed for experimenting intelligent transportation of tomorrow.
Open data - a real-time snapshot to transport
When does the bus arrive at the bus stop? How do I avoid the scene of an accident?
Open data enables end-user access to status and condition information of the transport network on the spot — for developers and companies it provides new business opportunities.
Indoor positioning in the urban city environment
The intelligent test environment in Tampere includes more than just streets and roads, the city also develops indoor positioning.
Gathering know-how on automatic driving
Autonomous mobility pilots are running in Tampere City Region. Autonomous minibuses have entered the cityscape to help solve the challenges of city transport. Further, the test area for automatic driving, where autonomous vehicles can drive in real traffic, operates in Tampere. These development pilots aim to create real services and autonomous vehicle functions for the end-users.
Boosting the electric transportation
The number of electric vehicles is growing world wide, and Finland is one of the leading countries what comes to the number of electric buses. Furthermore, there’s vast expertise on development of payment and identification systems of the vehicle charging devices in Finland.
To gather user experiences for future development, the first electric buses have been introduced in Tampere city region.
