The Goal.

Jätkäsaari Mobility Lab supports innovation and business development. We aim at generating better mobility solutions for the region and beyond, while building a strong network for collaboration and co-creation.

Smart + Sustainable

The focus of supported pilots and solutions are on improved traffic flow, sustainable modal choices, mitigation of traffic violations and accidents, and improved air quality.

Network + Cocreate

We promote ongoing activities, nourish synergies between partners and projects, and support a lively ecosystem of public, private and research parties.

Innovate + Grow

We facilitate and enable piloting and demonstration of new solutions and services in the Jätkäsaari area to provide references and scaling opportunities.

HOPE empowers citizens to develop their own districts. Project focuses on three districts with air quality challenges; Jätkäsaari with heavy port-related traffic, Mäkelänkatu-Kumpula area with street canyons and over 40 000 daily vehicles, and Pakila with adjacent main roads and domestic wood-burning.

The overall challenge is that measuring, analysis and dissemination of air quality data in any given location is very complicated and contaminated with error. Lack of real-time and reliable high resolution data has led to a situation where finding targeted interventions that take into account our citizens and their needs while also targeting specific pollution concentrations is missing for all European cities.

Mobility Urban Values – MUV

The MUV system will result from the combination of behavioural change techniques, new technologies, data science and co-design approaches.




The project has received funding from European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.


Sami Sahala (Forum Virium Helsinki)
The Mobility Urban Values (MUV) project encourages residents to change their mobility behaviour and make more sustainable mobility choices through illustration and gamification.

The project’s influencing methods are co-created with residents. At the same time, the project creates tools for both residents and data collection, thus facilitating local-level city planning.

Get Home Safely

The aim of the Get Home Safely project is to develop a smart lighting solution by combining an architectural perspective and IoT technology to improve safety of citizens and provide users a pleasant experience during their daily commute. Moreover, the digital twin created by Aalto University illustrates its usefulness in urban planning.  




The project has received co-funding from EIT Digital and Helsinki pilot is supported by City of Helsinki co-financing. 


Heidi Heinonen (Forum Virium Helsinki)   
Forum Virium assesses impact of smart lighting on the feeling of comfort and safety in areas that are still under construction like the district of Jätkäsaari. 

Produced and designed by CyPhyLab, a laboratory operating under Technische Universität Berlin’s Institute of Architecture, the hexagonal city smart light is an IoT-based cyber-physical system of networked personalised lights mainly for outdoor use. The colour of the lights can also be adjusted using a mobile application provided free of charge for the end users ie. citizens so that the lights can guide people from A to B.
