Our cities

Interventions will be demonstrated in a selection of cities across Europe

Lighthouse cities

6 cities will pilot key interventions. They will be specifically co-designed and co-created with identified vulnerable to exclusion user groups, local authorities and other relevant stakeholders.

In Helsinki, the number of deaths and injuries among pedestrians and cyclists, although not high compared to many other European cities, remains a cause for concern. The relevance of serious injuries
is rising in urban areas, and their societal costs are substantial. Young people figure highly in accident analyses, and a significant challenge lies in the lack of data on exactly where accidents are taking place.
Due to larger traffic density, more crashes may occur in the city’s central area. The Living Lab will focus on the city centre and the newly developed Jätkäsaari district.

The Helsinki Living Lab will focus on testing new solutions for collecting, visualising and analysing crash data using 3D models and the Helsinki Digital Twin. Particular attention will be paid to accidents
involving shared electric scooters and bicycles. The city’s road safety measures and guidelines for light 
electric vehicle service providers can be influenced by better data. The Living lab will also pay attention
to perceived safety in traffic by experimenting with camera-based detection at accident-prone intersections and real-time warnings of approaching vehicles and improving existing tools, such as
machine vision-based tools. The focus will be on vulnerable road users, but interventions will contribute to increased safety for all.

Follower cities

6 cities will learn and exchange with the Lighthouse cities to plan and implement their own sustainable solutions.


With a knowledge-sharing twinning approach to improve long-term sustainability, facilitating replication, uptake, and capacity building between the cities, the Lighthouse and Followers cities will work together in a knowledge hub within the project duration and beyond.

The Lund Living Lab will develop and test new ways of measuring real-time traffic data to create a better understanding of all type of transports and their interplay. Lund will experiment with transforming city streets during different time periods into walking and cycling areas and analyse the effects. Lund will also follow the other project cities and prepare for replicating selected interventions.


Lund will also deploy early versions of the adapted common data platform that will serve the whole Elaborator project developed by Sensative for data sharing. The platform is already up and running as a part of Lund OpenSensoring City, an Open IoT testbed established in 2017 that has been continuously upgraded with new functionalities.
