1 City of Vantaa New Plans and Projects Smart Mobility for Better Cities Conference 12 May, 2011 Gilbert Koskela Project Engineer Marja-Vantaa project

2 City of Vantaa has been a forerunner in Finland in studying of new solutions for better mobility Automated People and Goods Mover (APGM): A feasibility study of APGM-system in Aviapolis area next to the Helsinki airport CityNetMobil: City of Vantaa has been a member in a reference group of CityNetMobil project. The objective has been to study use of electric driverless cybercars in public transportation (CityMobil and CityNetMobil projects funded by the EU) CityMobil - Future Mobility Solutions Conference and a showcase of cybercars in May 2009 in Vantaa City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 2

3 Sustainable Marja-Vantaa Promoting new traffic innovation Showcase in Vantaa in May 2009 City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 3

4 Showcase route in Tikkurila, Vantaa Town hall Railway station Sokos Hotel Vantaa City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 4

5 The Main objectives of the showcase The showcase focuses on 1. exploring how a new type of automated transport systems can be used in urban traffic, 2. arising common interest and debate in the Finnish media into new technological possibilities in urban transportation, 3. demonstrating to local inhabitants and specialists a new set of technological solutions applicable to public transportation. 4. asking passengers experiences of use of Cybercars by a questionnaire. 5. organising a CityMobil conference especially for Finnish traffic and city planning experts. 6. organising an CityMobil information meeting for local inhabitants 7. presenting fully automated Cybercars in operation City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 5 8. organising a safe route where to present Cybercars in action

6 Comments in questionnaire in Vantaa Comments which arose in Vantaa in questionnaire: Does it work in winters? Winter circumstances Vehicles must have doors! Better seats, Safety belts, Vehicle with TV and radio The vehicle were too light, heavier vehicles needed Speed of the vehicle, now they were very slowly ones More space in the vehicle for shopping and luggage besides passengers How does it work in areas outside signal covariance as between high buildings? Fear of vehicle in function, as does it stop when wanted and go where you want if you change your mind. Privacy in cybercar to avoid unwanted passengers/neighbours Availability any time of day Help service when the vehicle stop on the road Speed of calling services Helsinki regional ticketing system must be valid also in cybercars Fear or vandalism Voice control system City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 6

7 Open questions after the showcase How will the transportation system be developed in the future? (Public) transportation system in the future and sustainable development/climate strategy What kind of automated system (GRT, PRT, AAC) would complete existing public transportation? Are driverless electric cars technically possible in Finland? Technical possibilities and requirements of automated electric vehicles in Finnish weather circumstances Can we change our habits of travelling? How can we win different kind of barriers? Barriers in people s mind Technical and environmental barriers Legal, economical and political barriers City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 7

8 Ongoing Syöksy-project Name of the project: Electric Vehicles in Ring Rail Line feeder services and in other station area transport services (SYÖKSY) Applicant: Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (vehicle technology) Other research partners in the project: Tampere University of Technology (transport system and land use planning) The Aalto University School of Science and Technology, Centre for Urban and Regional Studies (YTK) (social sciences, user aspect) Budget Funding programme: 60 % Tekes the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation, Sustainable community programme Other major funding sources: City of Vantaa / Vantaa Innovation Institute Ltd, Helsinki Regional Transport Authority (HSL), Vantaa Energy Electricity Networks Ltd, Shopping Centre Jumbo, Itella Ltd, Hermia Ltd, Ensto Ltd, and European Batteries Ltd Timetable of the project: April 2010 October 2011 City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 8

9 Goals of Syöksy project To develop a modern sustainable transportation system for the Ring Rail Line feeder traffic and other short-distance trips in two development areas: Marja-Vantaa and Aviapolis area. A modern sustainable transportation system which bases on electric or other vehicles with low-co2 level which supports the traditional public transportation system and provides a realistic options for use of private cars in city traffic which promotes planning new type of transport services with infrastructure needed City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela Metropolia Ammattikorkeakoulu 9

10 Goals of Syöksy project To develop a sustainable concept that acts in between traditional public transportation and private cars and which can be duplicated into all the Ring rail line station areas and other areas both locally and internationally. To test both charging technology and service applications in smallscale pilot projects To assess impacts of the different transport service concepts on traffic demand, travel habits, city structure, land use and location of activities. City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela Metropolia Ammattikorkeakoulu 10

11 Syöksy project Three main focus areas User-driven transport system planning Developing guidelines for user-driven transport system planning. Identifying user friendly transport system in pilot areas. Transport system planning Most suitable public transport system in the future. Impacts on land use planning as on street planning. Needed technology The needed vehicle technology and technical infrastructure. The business concepts supporting the system. Testing: Small-scale piloting and testing is done during the project. City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 11

12 Time perspectives of Syöksy project The Project has two time perspectives: Short term: A solution which could be implemented by technology known today. Long term: A vision for the future ( ) solutions, which may help you to understand in what kind of solutions you must be prepared in planning of new residential and working place areas. City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela Metropolia Ammattikorkeakoulu 12

13 Aalto University, Centre for Urban and Regional Studies User-driven traffic planning Research objective Study and develop user-driven approach on public transport concepts Benefits of the user-driven approach Support implementation of usable solutions Reduce the resistance for new technologies Promote the adoption of new sustainable lifestyle For the users this means: possibility to participate and affect planning convenience and comfort services appropriateness (new product / service meets the user need better than previous applications) Material Survey on commuters visions and anticipation Inhabitant workshop for developing transport concepts City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 13

14 Developed service Call-a-bus Service Pros Tackling the private car use (e.g. from shop to home) Call a bus for children s leisure travel, would be safe and easy solution for taximamas Cons Need for anticipation and time management Mischief of the vehicle New services should be integrated in present city structure, and also to existing services like internet based journey planner in order to be easy to use. concepts Shared electric vehicles Pros Tackling the second car Possibility to use environmentally friendly car without having to invest on it. Lower maintenance cost Cons Need for anticipation and time management Sharing is socially demanding (possible contradictions on the level of tidiness etc.) In order to overcome the private car dependency, new car sharing services should be flexible (e.g. easy to reserve) and cheap.

23 Promoting Car Sharing Helsinki Region Transport has launched in April a three-year-project to promote Car Sharing system in Helsinki Region. City of Vantaa is involved in the project. Four themes of the Car Sharing project: 1. Parking: Parking allocation, pricing and permits. Marking, guiding, road signs, monitoring of parking places. Assessment of new parking places for shared cars 2. Public organisations: How to promote public organisation to use car sharing system instead of permanent car rental, when the use of rental car is occasional? Procurement procedures and so on. 3. Land use planning and building: Parking policy, guiding of developers, sustainable construction 4. Information and marketing: E-services, connection with other services, information and advice, and later a marketing campaign City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 23

24 Are driverless cybercars already in use in Finland? A driverless car was running in Helsinki Both of them says that he is driving this car. City of Vantaa, Gilbert Koskela 24 Former Prime minister Minister of Finance
