Polis-Gothenburg-Volvo workshop: Geofencing – new tool in town!

29 May 2019 - 9.00-13.00h - Gothenburg

The first geofencing applications appear in city streets: hybrid vehicles are turned to electric mode within specific areas, and speed is limited close to schools. How is the technology evolving, what is the expected market uptake, and how can cities use this in planning and managing traffic? Furthermore, what is the role of the cities, what challenges are posed and what are the next steps?

Questions addressed: How is the technology evolving, what is the expected market uptake, and how can cities use this in planning and managing traffic? Furthermore, what is the role of the cities, what challenges are posed and what are the next steps? The final agenda can be found here.

The city of Gothenburg, Volvo Group, CLOSER and Polis cooperated to have this first-of-a-kind exchange, for cities to better understand what the technology and its applications entail, and for industry and research to see how geofencing can help cities.

All presentations are available:
