Battery-powered buses make cities greener
Slide In is a project in which the aim is to research the potential for battery driven city busses, which currently run on an electric contact.
The project will assess running the busses on batteries which would free the busses from having to follow an electric contact cable. This in turn will give the busses the ability to operate more freely.
ÅF is a partner in the project together with Lunds University, Skånetrafiken, Volvo and Motivationshuset, with contribution from EU Life+. The goal is to create an attractive and cost effective solution to contribute to a cleaner environment.
ÅF’s role is to create a wireless transmission and store data from buses for further analysis by scientists.
