FinEstSmartMobility – Helsinki West Harbour pilot. The project aims to tackle the ever increasing challenge of traffic congestion and flows of 8 million annual passengers between Tallinn and Helsinki through intelligent traffic solutions. The West Harbour pilot focuses on the harbour’s incoming and outcoming freight and passenger traffic.
FinEstSmartMobility – Vantaa Aviapolis pilot. The project aims to tackle the ever increasing challenge of traffic congestion and flows of 8 million annual passengers between Tallinn and Helsinki through intelligent traffic solutions. The Aviapolis pilot concentrates on the traffic flow from Tallinn to Helsinki Airport area.
Perille asti / Last mile project – Espoo Waterfront Walkway & Nuuksio Natural Park. Research about the accessibility and mobility services preferred by travelers´ and service providers.
Perille asti / Last mile project – Vantaa Aviapolis. Travelers´ expectations for mobility services and accessibility of touristic attractions were studied at the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, in some hotels in Aviapolis area and in Kuusijärvi recreational area.
Perille asti / Last mile project – Helsinki Jätkäsaari. The Last mile project utilises a market-oriented approach to seek new smart mobility solutions for the needs of tourists, residents and commuters. The aim is to facilitate transport for these target groups in the areas of Järkäsaari and Ruoholahti in Helsinki.

RoboBusLine. Scheduled robobus service in regular traffic on roads in the Kivikko district of Helsinki. The RobobusLine project prepares for commercially viable automated bus operation in Helsinki projected to start by 2021.
FABULOS (Future Automated Bus Urban Level Operation System). The FABULOS project focuses on how cities can use self-driving minibuses in a systematic way. The goal is to procure the operations of an automated bus line. In Helsinki, the autonomous bus line will be piloted in the Pasila and Kalasatama area in 2020. Companies can receive up to 5.5 million euros to support their R&D work in developing systems capable of operating fleets of automated minibuses.
Sohjoa Baltic. The project works towards increasing the attractiveness of public transport by improving offered services and introducing automated driverless electric minibuses, especially for the first and last mile of the journey. The Helsinki pilot takes place in 2019.
ROBUSTA. The project will test and study technologies that enable to remove the human operator from the bus and put to the control room responsible of multiple buses. Specific research and development themes include e.g. software platform for remote control of robot buses, 5G network as an enabler technology, real-time sensor data, AI assisted human-machine communication.
HSL IdeaLab. In June 2018 HSL (Helsinki Region Transport) launched the IdeaLab innovation contest, seeking new mobility or related services for the Helsinki metropolitan area. With a total financing of 1M€ split to 2-3 pilots, they’re looking for solutions related to e.g. ridesharing, door-to-door services, moving around goods and people, reducing the need to travel or something completely new.
Jätkäsaari Mobility Lab supports innovation and business development. It aims at generating better mobility solutions for the region and beyond, while building a strong network for collaboration and co-creation. The focus of supported pilots and solutions are on improved traffic flow, sustainable modal choices, mitigation of traffic violations and accidents, and improved air quality.
