Phase two of three in the pilot project for the development of quality-assured and more efficient work routines in public transport with the help of AI and ML has now been completed. Together with Chalmers Industriteknik, we have produced a successful ‘Proof of Concept’ (PoC).
We have evaluated the results and will now select a suitable partner for a 1-year pilot project to refine our technology and our algorithms.
After that we plan a European launch.
Excerpts from ElectriCity:
“Full-scale fully electrified bus traffic on several routes in Gothenburg, procurement of a record number of electric buses and countless tests. But also a broader scope focusing on, among other things, electrification of maritime traffic and construction sites, air quality studies and community planning. These are some of the results that came from the ElectriCity collaboration. ”
In addition to this, ElectriCity has also led to new collaborations, procurement and further research. Among other things, large procurements have been carried out by more electric buses to Gothenburg and collaborative projects on standardization of buses’ IT systems.We have received funding from the Västra Götaland region for a full-scale pilot project on optimizing work routines with the help of AI and ML in passenger traffic.In collaboration with Chalmers Industrial Technology, we have developed the software that is needed to start the project. This will be carried out together with Volvo Bus within the ElectriCity project with support from, among others, Västra Götaland region, City of Gothenburg, Västtrafik and Keolis.
On May 27, we deliver the pre-programmed hardware to Volvo to be installed on line 55, after which the tests will start immediately.
We have had our yearly pen-test performed on Jetas server and applications.
The inspection report is dated 2020-03-18 and showed that we do NOT have any critical vulnerabilities and only 1 deficiency of a more serious nature. Together with H2 Data AB, we have started to address this shortcoming. (It has to do with a protocol we use for communication to be upgraded to newer version.)
Saps has signed a new agreement with Skånetrafiken regarding the operation and maintenance of stops and stations throughout Skåne. The agreement extends over a five-year period with an option for a further two-year extension. The contract sum is estimated to amount to approximately SEK 50-70 million over the contract period. Saps has about 200 employees across the country.
From January 1, 2020, Saps will manage all bus stops in the Skåne region’s 33 municipalities using the JETAS METHOD.
Implementation and training of Saps staff will be ongoing during the fall of 2019.
JETAS has made a decision by the Board to use only EL-powered service cars from January 1, 2020.
The cars that are replaced today produce about 8 tonnes of CO2 per year, by switching to electric cars that are only charged on green electricity, we eliminate the total emissions.
