In an increasingly complex and digitalized sector, one where automation, electro mobility and connected vehicles make up the future, new requirements are being set.
This is why Autoliv, Ericsson, Volvo Cars, the Volvo Group and Zenuity opened MobilityXlab at Lindholmen Science Park. The companies want to strengthen their positions at the forefront of a changing automotive industry with the aim of collaborating with start-ups to develop and demonstrate safer and more efficient transportation for tomorrow’s world.
MobilityXlab, which includes an innovation lab and expo space, shares the same building as Zenuity, Volvo Car’s and Autoliv’s joint venture developing software for self-driving vehicles.
“In a time when the automobile industry is undergoing rapid change – mutual exchange between specialized companies can create more robust solutions more rapidly. The pace of innovation is accelerating,” said Jan Carlson, Autoliv chairman, president and CEO.
The investment enables the shared development of new technology as well as collaboration with smaller start-ups. The companies say these ideas are worthwhile to support and draw inspiration from. Through this, the companies also aim to stimulate the development across the Swedish automotive cluster with the objective of increasing competitiveness in terms of tomorrow’s transportation system.
