    How can catenary position be monitored?


    Personally I stopped taking the train from Lund to Kastrup, since trains are far too frequent delayed. Often I hear the excuse that the catenary was down close to Ängelholm. We are working on a force measurement device for pantographs, which can be mounted on every train - that can indicate catenary issues, before failure.

    How does one manage design and branding when expanding from products to adding more and more services?


    We have a long history developing premium products to a selective market. Product design & branding have long been integrated in our development process but services are growing to an increasingly important part of our business and the question is how these can be managed to form a unified customer experience?

    How will vehicles relate to the predicted urban conditions of the next decades?


    What kind of strategies are promoted today towards the integration of transportation and technology in general to emergent socio-cultural phenomena. For example, increased use of electric vehicle creates a more silent pedestrian environment which also might create a need for electric and hybrid vehicles to include pedestrian alert sounds as an opportunity to redefine the un-explored sonic condition of our cities. Sonic Movement is a collaborative project that address this particular question.

    How can energy consumption be monitored in electric vehicles, focusing both on the individual and on the societal level?


    Today there is a shift to electrical cars in the society. We have very advanced measurement on the amount of petrol you buy. The meters are "krönta" and are controlled several times a year. When charging at home, at office etc you seldom today are connected to a charging infrastructure that will tell you the amount of energy you put in your car. The car doesn't have it either. There is a need for easy to use connected smart meters where and how should they be constructed in wallsocket, on the cable, or in the car? use GSM, the car wifi or interaction with the actual car? The same applies to all electrical vehicles bikes, motorcycles, tweezy etc.

    ”The internet of things” and smart grids – how will the transportation sector and travelling be affected by things and people being more and more “online”? Will we have our own cars? Will we need garages? How will goods be transported to our homes? What IT-infrastructures will the transportation sector need? What opportunities for the transportation sector are created by emerging IT systems?

    Who will pay? The transportation sector is becoming more and more diversified. This diversification requires more infrastructures, more types of fuels need to be made available, possibly even a new type of roads. Who should pay for the development of technologies and investments in infrastructures when the future is so unsure. How markets be stimulated to lead development, rather than await future standards?

    An annual report of traffic accident trends in Stockholm shows that a third of all road accident victims are pedestrians involved in single accidents (i.e. accidents where the victim slip or fall without anyone else is being involved). Are these figures specific for Stockholm or do other cities with similar climate show the same result? What can Stockholm do to prevent single accidents that are unrelated to snow or ice?

    How do we create an objective allocation of train paths to generate maximum socio-economic value?


    How does the Swedish Transport Administration handle a situation in which two companies in the same priority category applies for the same attractive train path? With what principles, methodologies and tool does the Swedish Transport Administration handle the situation? The prerequisites and conditions that apply to the allocation of capacity and future traffic must be stated in the rail road network statement from the infrastructure manager (infrastrukturförvaltarens järnvägsnätsbeskrivning), published in December each year.

    What would be a preferable business model for sustainable waterborne public transport?


    Cities are becoming more and more congested and society strive for a city development with less cars and more public transport in order to increase flow and accessibility. However, the space of the streets is limited, which sometimes cause problems to add capacity and develop additional public transport e.g. bus lanes devoted to Bus Rapid Transit systems (BRT) or similar solutions. The Swedish Transport administration has among others identified that the waterways might be a potential for developing complementary modes of mass transit in urban areas. Traditionally, waterborne mass transit has, however, not been included in the long term city development strategies. Any new system has to fulfil the demands of the commuters and therefore set requirements in terms of an intermodal solution and smooth travelling as in one system. Relevant fact is that the mass transit budget of the society is already rather stressed and that the private sector probably needs to contribute.

    An important issue for cost benefit analysis is the volume and the trip distribution of the so-called light commercial traffic carried out by automobiles and light trucks in connection with work. Other light vehicle traffic information is obtained with the help of travel surveys and modeling based on these, and they include private travel separated into work, other and business travel. Also trips by taxi fall into this category although taxi transport of course is commercial traffic. Thus the question is whether there is any method that could identify this traffic using observations and register-based statistics etc. within reasonable cost limits and subject to the rules of confidentiality and without violating privacy?
