Carmenta joins Drive Sweden
30 June 2016 ,
Drive Sweden is a Strategic Innovation Program launched by the Swedish government that gathers the best in the area – from all sectors of society. The programme goals are to drive the evolution towards a transportation system based on automation, digitisation and servification. The partners work closely together to make optimal use of all possibilities, but also to address the challenges that could arise along the way. This could pertain to road safety, adaptation of infrastructure and legislation that needs updating.
- “As one of the leading companies in the situational awareness technology landscape Carmenta has decided to join Drive Sweden, we are looking forward to contribute to a transport future which is safer, more efficient and much greener than today”, says Johan Holmqvist, Business Development at Carmenta AB. “Carmenta have developed situational awareness system support in many industry sectors and we believe that our expertise in emergency response and national rescue will be a strong contribution to the program", says Johan Holmqvist.
The Drive Sweden innovation program started in the spring of 2015. It is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency, the Swedish Research Council Formas and Sweden’s innovation agency VINNOVA. Lindholmen Science Park is the host for the program.
