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 varying air quality challenges. Main focus will be in Jätkäsaari with heavy port-related traffic. Comparative measurements will be conducted in Mäkelänkatu-Kumpula section with street canyons and over 40 000 daily vehicles, but also in Pakila district that is affected by 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.

Generate open data on traffic situation for third parties, and using this data to find ways of improving traffic fluency in the harbour area with the help of AI.


Q4/2019 - Q4/2021


59 500€ from Jätkäsaari Mobility Lab for equipment procurement, installation and consultation services for the opening of data. 50 000€ from Port of Helsinki for AI based traffic optimization solutions.

Jätkäsaari Smart Junction project produces data on traffic fluency through cameras and radars installed at the bottleneck intersection of Mechelininkatu/Hietalahdenkatu and Jätkäsaarenlaituri. This data feeds to further research on possibilities to improve traffic fluency with the help of traffic signal optimization based on the application of AI.
