Geofencing is a collective term that covers the application of technical solutions in combination with appropriate digital and organizational processes to ensure that vehicles follow specific characteristics in certain geographical areas.

Geofencing is considered an important tool towards creating a safe road transport system for vulnerable road users in today's complex traffic environments. It is also important to be able to accommodate both current and future demands for safer, quieter transportation that is not reliant on fossil fuels. The research and innovation programme for geofencing is intended to facilitate and coordinate projects and initiatives which aim towards large-scale implementation.

Vehicles are already connected to a major degree and this can be utilised to create a sustainable and safe environment. Geofencing defines a digitalised geographic zone within which characteristics of connected vehicles can be controlled, such as speed and power chain. In time, geofencing will also be capable of limiting access to specific zones or areas. 

The programme will run until 2022 and is co-financed by the Swedish Transport Administration. The parties involved are: Scania AB, AB Volvo, Volvo Personvangar AB, Veoneer, the city of Stockholm, the city of Gothenburg, the Swedish Transport Agency. We expect additional stakeholders to take part as time goes on.
