iq pilot & iQ mobility


Are we ready for autonomous public transport?

Let´s check out how Stockholm could start running an autonomous bus line in its current public transport network.
We showcase our recent research findings on autonomous vehicle technology and fully autonomous public transport systems with focus on safety, flexibility, energy- and cost efficiency.

webinar essentials


Time: 10:00 – 12:00 and 13:00 - 15:30


10:00 – 12:00 Live Webinar – overall demonstration and discussions

13:00 – 15:30 Live break-out sessions – deep dive in research themes

Place: Online event (Zoom)

We demonstrate and discuss the final results of two research projects: iQPilot and iQMobility.

The projects have been funded by Strategic vehicle research and innovation programme (FFI) and the research results are the joint efforts of Scania, Ericsson, INIT, Veoneer, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Örebro University.

We will share interim results in "AI for perception" as well from iQDeep, a related FFI funded project.

Projects in brief

iq pilot

This project has provided advances with vehicle automation technology that have allowed us to showcase a complete autonomous bus solution.

We demonstrate how an autonomous bus can be operated within an autonomous bus transport system and drive autonomously with respect to the road itself and other road users.

We also provide insight into the technical solutions that will allow us to drive autonomously in urban areas and showcase our efforts with perception out on the roads.

iq mobility

The project's main contribution is to showcase how an autonomous public transport can be efficiently utilized, both in terms of becoming more flexible in comparison to a man-driven network but also in being more cost- and energy-efficient.

A well-structured public transport system should be able to optimize its network based on parameters such as safety, user- and environmental-friendliness, traffic, cost, etc. and prioritize those bus lines that can be automated first in the current network.
