The purpose of the test bed is to create a cross-functional, open and innovative demonstration arena. Through digitalisation and automation, focus will be on increasing the efficiency of daily operations, enhancing the recreational value and reducing environmental impact.
The first test area is The Garden Society of Gothenburg, where robotic lawnmowers are being installed in a public space and new sensor technology is being tested, in the hopes of gaining new insights into the park’s values, its maintenance and how to interact with visitors in a smart way. Several different projects will be implemented and prototypes and small-scale solutions will be tested and demonstrated in this test bed.
Sustainable Smart Parks is a collaboration between several of Gothenburg City's companies and administrations: Parks & Nature Administration, Sports & Societies Administration, Environment Administration, Bostads AB Poseidon, Göteborgs Stads Leasing AB, Johanneberg Science Park and Husqvarna AB.
