Campus 2030 : Enabling systemic solutions for smart roads
With the advent of smart transportation, infrastructure can no longer be seen as a static part of the solution, in which possible ‘smart’ IT components are merely placed within the body/surface of the road. Nor can ‘the road’ and it associated industry longer be operating as a separate part of the transport equation, as more integrated road solutions are needed. This change towards more complex solutions and partnerships has to be managed. For this reason, in the heart of the KTH campus, Campus2030 will enable innovative partnerships towards sustainable systemic solutions of smart roads.
The project, building upon existing tools and expertise, launches a Digital Twin of KTHs road infrastructure that includes an augmented reality (AR) experience on campus to stimulate interaction with an open smart road digital platform developed in the project.
Campus2030 aims to become a fertile environment that serves as an important nursery of ideas for students, researchers and industry stakeholders to test out new smart transportation ideas.
When on Campus2030, visitors will be invited to interact with the Digital Twin via focused transportation case-studies that are activated with the scanning of Campus2030 ‘markers’ via smartphones.
Together with its industry and KTH partners, Campus2030 provides an environment that serves as an important nursery for students, authorities, researchers and industry stakeholders to systemically optimize smart transportation ideas, making use of the full cross-disciplinary range of expertise available.
