SmashHit

Forum Virium Helsinki, Infotripla, Volkswagen, ...
Addressing challenges of secure and trusted use of connected vehicle data.
1/2020-12/2022
6,9M€ total (Horizon 2020)
Piia Hanhirova (Forum Virium Helsinki)
The SmashHit (Smart Dispatcher for Secure and Controlled Sharing of Distributed Personal and Industrial Data) project addresses secure and trusted sharing of vehicle data.

Relevant aspects developed and tested in Helsinki include MyData and piloting cases such as using data to address blind spots behind corners in the Jätkäsaari area.

Ubiwhere and traffic measurements

Testing traffic data measurements and producing open data from relevant intersections in the area.
Matias Oikari (Forum Virium Helsinki)
Open data is being produced by the Portuguese Ubiwhere with different technologies in two locations in the West Harbour area. The data is produced in The Crusell bridge and Mechelininkatu-Pohjoinen Rautatienkatu intersection. During the spring of 2021 open data will be produced in two additional locations in Selkämerenkatu and Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu. In addition to traffic data, the Crusell bridge and Mechelininkatu sites also include an air quality stations.

The API documentation for the open data can be found here: https://urbsense.urbanplatform.city/api/public/docs/.

Drone path

Drone delivery service

Third Space Auto, Fly-By Guys
Goal: Testing the usefulness of drone deliveries
Contact: Matias Oikari (Forum Virium Helsinki)

Drone-based delivery services to the district of Jätkäsaari. The pilot test both the feasibility and usefulness as well as citizens' views about using drones as a means for delivering items.

This pilot is one of the selected agile pilots from the call in the summer of 2020.

InnoTrafik's sensor capsule

Smart pedestrian warning system for the visually impaired

InnoTrafik
Goal: Testing the feasibility of a warning system for the visually impaired
Contact: Janne Rinne (Forum Virium Helsinki)

A smart warning system for the visually impaired at pedestrian crossings.

This project is one of the selected agile pilots. The solution will be tested in the spring of 2021 as the first phase of the agile pilot process.

Trombia's autonomous street sweeper

Autonomous street sweeper

Trombia Technologies
Goal: Testing the feasibility of an autonomous street sweeper
Contact: Janne Rinne (Forum Virium Helsinki)
Piloting Trombia's autonomous and energy efficient street sweeper as a street maintenance solution.

This project is one of the selected agile pilots. The solution will be tested in the spring of 2021 as the first phase of the agile pilot process.

Bike path condition measurement

TerrainSense
Goal: Testing the use of bike-mounted sensors for bike path condition measurement
Contact: Janne Rinne (Forum Virium Helsinki)

Measuring the condition of bike paths with sensors installed in bicycles to monitor issues and maintenance levels.

This project is one of the selected agile pilots. The solution will be tested in the spring of 2021 as the first phase of the agile pilot process.

Dangerous driving behaviour at pedestrian crossing

Near miss detection at pedestrian crossings

Kradient Intelligence
Goal: Testing the detection of dangerous driving behaviour at pedestrian crossings
Contact: Janne Rinne (Forum Virium Helsinki)

Detection of near miss events at pedestrian crossings by using machine vision.

This project is one of the selected agile pilots. The solution will be tested in the spring of 2021 as the first phase of the agile pilot process.

Lidar

Traffic monitoring with LIDAR and edge computing

Nodeon
Goal: Testing the feasibility of LIDAR technology for traffic monitoring
Contact: Janne Rinne (Forum Virium Helsinki)

Testing the use of LIDAR technology and edge computing in traffic monitoring for the purposes of traffic management, planning and counting.

This project is one of the selected agile pilots. The solution will be tested in the spring of 2021 as the first phase of the agile pilot process.

Map of Jätkäsaari with information points for last 50 meter routing

Last-meter routing for delivery logistics

Tietorahti Oy
Making urban delivery logistics smoother by detailed entrance data and last-meter routing tool.
Schedule Q4/2020 - Q1/2021
Janne Rinne (Forum Virium Helsinki)

More info about the pilot (In Finnish)

https://forumvirium.fi/tietorahti-pilotti-helsinki/
The Tietorahti mobile map provides detailed location and information about the entrances of buildings in the city center of Helsinki. The map also includes official loading sites for logistics as well as no-parking zones that are used for logistics. Once parked, the driver can switch from the mobile map to the routing tool Gatesolve which gives the shortest route to the right entrance by foot.

Professional drivers from logistics companies take part in the agile pilot by giving feedback about the feasibility and further development needs of the solution. They also validate and complement the data on loading sites.

Colossus Finland's electric carbo bikes in Jätkäsaari

Electric Cargo Bikes

Colossus Finland, HKL
Goal: Learning about user behaviour and developing the operating model for scalability.
1.7.2020-1.11.2020
Finished Q4/2020 Colossus Finland's shared electric city cargo bikes are piloted in the Jätkäsaari-Ruoholahti area in the summer of 2020.

The pilot is a part of the “Keksi pyörä uudelleen!” innovation challenge organized by HKL (Helsinki City Transport) in the spring of 2020.
