Innovation zone Hornsgatan
What are the results?
The result shows that it is technically possible to create a smart zone for dynamic speed control. The drivers of the vehicles tested were mostly positive about the system, however there were some minor speeding violations within the zone. This is probably due to the zone being too small or the traffic conditions in the tested area. In order to be able to say with certainty what effects the application has on traffic safety, the solution would need to be tested in more places, as well as with more participating vehicles to collect more data. The information that the connected loading bay provides has given the city of Stockholm new ideas regarding how the planning and use of the street space can be developed for a more dynamic use. Smart urban traffic zones have also explored how such a smart zone could be implemented by requiring speed enforcement or geofencing in procurement of coordinated goods distribution.
