Introduction

 

The BADA project fuses data science with transport logistics in Sweden. It is a collaboration between SICS-RISE, Volvo cars & trucks, Scania trucks, and the road traffic authority, Trafikverket. It is financed by Vinnova, a state funding agency. Some information (in Swedish) is available fromĀ FFI Vinnova.

The project uses data processing systems running at high rates to produce value to the manufacturers and road operating body from the data they collect. The use cases we have worked with are:

  1. Road traffic accident data logged by the police
  2. Inform fleets of vehicles during a hazard warning press
  3. Detecting road queue accumulation within Stockholm
