GLAD - final event

SAFER, Lindholmspiren 3A, room Bohlin or TEAMS

Welcome to learn about the findings in the GLAD-project!

The GLAD-project (Goods deliveries under the last mile with automated delivery vehicles) is a research project that has explored different aspects of the potentials and challenges with automated delivery vehicles (ADV), such as business use cases, interactions with humans in different contexts and legal and policy aspects of future ADV. The overall objective has been to develop knowledge and insights about the prerequisites, requirements and challenges that need to be addressed to make deliveries with ADV efficient, safe and accepted. The project has been a joint research project with RISE (coordinator), Halmstad university and the industry partners Aptiv, Clean Motion and Combitech. The project has been partly financed by Trafikverket (Swedish Transport Administration). 

In this final seminar we will present and conclude the results from the GLAD-project.

The seminar is in conjunction with Lindholmen Open Day (https://www.lindholmen.se/en/event/lindholmen-open-day-2022) which is a full-day event at Lindholmen for networking and to show and promote successful collaboration between different actors – and GLAD-project is a good example of collaboration between industry, research & development. We will also have a booth and show some of the ADV-prototypes that have been developed and used in the GLAD-project.
