Kista Science City AB and IQ Samhällsbyggnad have received the green light from Vinnova to conduct a feasibility study for an open testbed – the Urban Drone Testbed – which will lay down the blueprint for an infrastructure and regulatory framework large-scale, regular and secure drone traffic in the urban environment of Sweden’s capital Stockholm.
The two organisations are collaborating on the study with the public sector, industry, academia and civil society, which gives them the opportunity to influence what the testbed may include and how it will work.
The goal of the Urban Drone Testbed is to contribute to sustainable and connected city development by creating the conditions for new, secure services and business sectors where drones are made a natural part of the urban environment. The feasibility study will be completed on 30 June 2019, where the results will then be incorporated into an application for full-scale implementation.
