The roll-out of Actibump system continues in Australia.
In January 2018 Curtin University installed four active speed bumps called Actibump at the University's campus in Perth, Western Australia. The goal was to reduce the number of speeding drivers, particularly on semester week days when there are a lot of pedestrians and vehicles on campus. Mr Graham Arndt, Director of Operations and Maintenance at Curtin University, says:
- We have been extremely impressed with the effectiveness of the Actibumps in reducing the number of speeding motorists along that section of road. The use of the smart speed bumps also provides a steadier flow of traffic, which makes it easier for pedestrians to judge the speed of the approaching vehicle, therefore making it safer to cross the road. Additionally, the units have been maintenance free and have operated continuously for a year without the need for any intervention.

At Edeva we welcome Karlstad municipality as the latest member to join the Actibump family. They activated their very first Actibump system on the 31st of August.
Media was invited to join a minibus ride over the active speedbumps in order to show the passengers what it feels like to pass a lowered Actibump hatch. Their press invitation said " We will not break the law, we will control the bump manually."
Christian Ottosson from Edeva was present to control the speed bump and lower the hatch just in time for the minibus to cross it.
-The municipality is very happy with their choice and I must say it is an ideal location for an Actibump, says Christian.
-The installation has been made right outside a school on a road near one of the exits from the E18 highway from Oslo. It is a sensitive crossing with all the school children and separate cycling lanes on each side of the road. I believe the Actibump will be very useful here.
The 31st of August, when the system was activated, 23 % of the drivers were speeding. One week later, on the 6th of September, 14,7 % were speeding. We look forward to seeing these results improve!

Safer traffic environment for pedestrians and cyclists with active speedbumps
- That’s the headline of the recent press release from Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration.
Their press release continues to say that In the future you can avoid uncomfortable speedbumps just by staying within the speed limit. Speeders, however, will not get away from it. The Swedish Transport Administration are now testing a new technology – Active speedbumps.
In other words, the Swedish Transport Administration has installed two Actibumps on an E-road, E65, in the city of Ystad in Sweden.
The installation is the first installation site of three intended to be installed as a test in the road network of the Swedish Transport Administration.
The test is, according to Trafikverket, a traffic safety test in the spirit of Vision Zero. Vision Zero is the vision that nobody should be killed or seriously injured on Swedish roads. Read the full press release and see their animation, in Swedish, here.
Information regarding the system is also available, in Swedish, on the homepage of the Swedish Transport Administration, which we have translated into English here.
