Safe integration of micro-mobility in the transport system - SIMT
Research Project, 2022 – 2025

The rise of micromobility comes with unprecedented challenges to transportation safety (International Transport Forum, 2020). While contributing to sustainable transport, new micromobility vehicles (such as e-scooters) compete with other road users for infrastructure and are not safe. STRADA (City of Gothenburg, 2019; City of Stockholm, 2019) and insurance claims (Stigson & Klingegård, 2020) clearly show an increase in e-scooter collisions that the increasing popularity of e-scooters alone cannot explain. Today, we lack data that can clarify why e-scooter accidents occur (i.e. what happens just before the crash) and how the physical and digital infrastructure can facilitate the safe integration of e-scooters into the transport system.


The main long-term goal of this project is to propose innovative and data-driven countermeasures that can improve traffic safety. The countermeasures will focus on the planning, through design and regulation, of the physical and digital infrastructure, to promote the best integration of different sustainable modes of transportation. We will reach this goal by analyzing naturalistic data from e-scooters and by combining these data with crash data and traffic flow data in Göteborg within this project and its continuation. The results of the project will contribute to the achievement of the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDG):

SDG 3: Good health and well-being (Target 3.6);

SDG 9: Industries, innovation and infrastructure (Target 9.1);

SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities (Target 11.2).
