This project is a summer internship hosted by the Ericsson Garage, at Ericsson Research, and driven by Strategic Design, also at Ericsson Research. The project team consists of six students, two with interaction and product design background (UID) and four from various engineering programs (KTH). The designers will lead the concept and narrative development, meanwhile the engineering part of the team will be responsible for prototyping parts of the concepts.
This project would aim to develop examples of new digital services to address the current issues and challenges in the Slakthusomådet/Arenaområdet. These new digital services would be developed based on the new insights gained from innovative visualization and analysis of the real-time data on the flow of vehicles, parking, bicycles and pedestrians, their correlations with big events, weather and other parameters, and mapping these transport needs with existing public transport schedules and capacity.
Skarl has provided R&D into novel technologies for environmental monitoring involving unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs / drones). By the end of the project, Skarl has been able to showcase remote live data streaming using Urban ICT Arena’s base infrastructure.

A 5G-connected car is tested in Urban ICT Arena, a collaboration between the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Scania and Ericsson. A few kilometers from Kista, the vehicle, runs around a track and the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet got the chance to testdrive the car and published a article about the experience.
In the beginning of June pupils from Thorhildplans secondary high school met with high level staff from Universities and Cisco from Australia and New Zeeland in Kista Mentorspace.
We work towards digital sustainability goals in Urban ICT Arena. Every project run in the open testbed has to be related to them. Though, there is no requirement that they all are fulfilled – yet. 🙂
