Susan’s Ride on Campus2030
About the project
The objective of Susan’s ride on Campus2030 is to demonstrate the potential of digitalization in reducing the carbon footprint and improving the cost-efficiency of the construction and the transportation industry. With this objective, the project will establish a one-of-a-kind smart road infrastructure demonstrator on KTH campus Valhallavägen for the integrated design, construction and operation of smart infrastructures. The demonstrator will incorporate a digital twin of the KTH campus, corresponding to multiple models and data sets that enable to virtually assess and experience the Campus infrastructure, while being validated and updated through real-time data feeds from a variety of sensors. Some of our work in this direction can be seen on our testbed for Intelligent Transportation Systems on www.adeye.se. Susan’s ride will showcase the potential of edge computing, federated learning, and digital twins in the digital transformation of road construction and autonomous vehicle path planning.
Autonomous vehicles, dynamic charging of electrical vehicles and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication are just a few examples that require a systemic solution in order to function sustainably. Making the smart road sustainable requires a partnership between road owners, operators, electricity companies, vehicle manufacturers, transport and logistics companies as well as technology suppliers in digitalization. Data will become a fundamental asset in this partnership and will have to be collected through a combination of new sensors in the infrastructure already upon construction, on smart vehicles, including construction machinery.
The researchers in the team represent the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, KTH, the School of Architecture and the Built Environment, KTH and the School of Industrial Engineering and Management, KTH. The project leverages and extends research carried out in the Campus 2030 project and the TECoSA research centre.
