The mobility of the future will be strongly influenced by two megatrends: electrification and digitization. This session will explore how digitization and the use of methods from artificial intelligence can contribute to more efficient, traffic-safe and environmentally friendly mobility.
The Norwegian government’s strategy for artificial intelligence states that artificial intelligence represents great opportunities for us as humans and for society. Artificial intelligence can contribute to new and more efficient business models in business and efficient, flexible and on-demand services in the public sector. At the same time, there are many challenges, especially for the technology and analysis based on personal data. The wide spreading of the Internet of Things, development of high-capacity telecommunications networks and access to transport data are key elements in being able to utilize artificial intelligence in mobility. The strategy points to areas of application such as automated transport, intelligent traffic management and the construction, operation and maintenance of infrastructure.
In this session, researchers from SINTEF will share their knowledge and experience with the application of artificial intelligence in mobility. There will be an opportunity to ask questions to the speakers, either in the session or as a follow-up afterwards.
Data-driven construction site: Construction machines are responsible for one fifth of the greenhouse gas emission from the Norwegian building and construction industry. Skanska, SINTEF, Ditio and Volvo are collaborating on developing algorithms that can dynamically map the construction site and activity, identify sub-optimal working patterns, recognize effective routing, find out which machines are needed where, and can coordinate all machinery in order to reduce the emission from civil road construction projects.

VesselAI is a Horizon2020 project with the goal to develop an AI and HPC based framework for decision support in maritime applications. The Norwegian pilot case will use VesselAI framework services to support the Shore Control Centre operators with the planning and monitoring of the unmanned ASKO ferries crossing between Moss and Horten.
Presentation given by Marianne Hagaseth.
The digital mountain crossing: Mountain crossings are critical for transportation of people and goods between the different regions of Norway. However, operation of roads at such crossing’s during wintertime is challenging. In the project “The Digital Mountain Crossing”, led by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, new methods and tools are developed to help the different actors in the winter operation. This talk gives an overview on some aspects of this project, ranging from information sharing to sensor based deep learning prediction of driving conditions.
Presentation given by Jo Skjermo.
Smart transport in rural areas: Amela Karahasanovic is going to present the results from a research and innovation projects “Smart transport in rural areas”. The project is developing tools and services for Mobility-as-a-Service specially tailored for sparsely populated rural areas.
Presentation given by Dr. Amela Karahasanovic.
