In an increasingly complex and digitalised sector, where automation, electro mobility and connected vehicles comprise the future, new requirements are being set in terms of work approaches.
Which is why Autoliv, Ericsson, Volvo Cars, the Volvo Group and Zenuity have 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.
The investment enables the shared development of new technology as well as collaboration with smaller start-ups, whose ideas one wants to support and draw inspiration from. In this way, the companies aim to also stimulate the development across the Swedish automotive cluster with the objective of increasing competitiveness in terms of tomorrow’s transportation system.
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. Starting MobilityXlab at Lindholmen Science Park was an obvious choice for the partners.
“In a time when the automobile industry is undergoing rapid change — mutual exchange between specialised companies can create more robust solutions more rapidly. The pace of innovation is accelerating,” commented Jan Carlson, Autoliv Chairman, President and CEO.
