Gothenburg Demo Description and Implementation Plan. D13.1. to the EBSF2 project
Report, 2016

The EBSF2 project aims to test, evaluate and validate innovative technological solutions and/or strategies for urban and sub-urban bus systems through demonstrations in real service. Six key research areas have been identified to have the highest potential to impact: Energy Strategy and Auxiliaries;; Green Driver Assistance Systems; IT Standards introduction in existing fleet; Vehicle Design (capacity, accessibility, modularity); Intelligent Garage and predictive maintenance; and Interface between Bus and Urban infrastructure. These areas are to be further investigated in demonstrations in altogether 12 demonstration sites of which Gothenburg is one. The Gothenburg demonstration addresses three of the key research areas for innovation: New energy-efficient heating solution for electric buses (TIGot1); Attractiveness and efficiency of innovative external and internal design of electric buses (TIGot2); and Attractiveness of innovative bus stop designs (incl. indoor) and interaction between bus and bus stop designs (TIGot3).
