In 2019, Vinnova gave all Strategic Innovation Programs a possibility to develop an AI strategy. Since the use of AI is becoming more sophisticated and useful by the day, Drive Sweden decided to identify challenges, both for mobility of people and goods, where advanced data analytics or AI can be an enabler to solve the challenges. The review focused on the partners’ needs and interest in the area of sustainable mobility solutions and AI.
The review has resulted in both general results and a number of focus areas that could develop into new research and innovation projects. In the general perspective it is important to increase general knowledge of AI, to ensure trustworthy AI in the work ahead, and to emphasize the system perspective for the mobility system.
The report also raises the need for setting up strategic collaborations between mobility stakeholders and AI experts in order to increase the potential of applying AI on mobility.
Other issues that are being covered in the report include how to ensure trustworthy and ethical AI, i.e. complying with all applicable laws and regulations, future collaboration partners, the best ways of pinpointing new projects and proposed focus areas.
