We want to contribute to modern and sustainable urban development by developing innovative traffic systems for a human centred society. We make this a reality by developing new technology with robust, effective, efficient and flexible solutions. We aim to favour public transport and emergency vehicles with a focus on people and their life in the city. We are convinced that a safe, secure and liveable city is created by innovative, long-term and sustainable technical solutions.
While other companies are struggling, we have been lucky enough to hardly be affected at all by the ongoing pandemic. We've even been able to hire a new employee.
Stijn Boons started the first of September and will be our in-house IoT developer. He will, among other things, be a part of the development of a sensor-kit for collection of environmental data, develop a new way to make exceptions for emergency services, further develop EdevaLive and automate the software installations of the control systems for Actibump installations.
- I’m very happy to start at Edeva! I’ve just finished a two-year training program for Internet of Things and I’m looking forward to applying my knowledge to these projects.
Stijn is originally from Belgium but moved to Sweden and Linköping for love. He has learned Swedish very quickly and is a very welcome addition to the Edeva team!
The Swedish Transport Administration started their first Actibump installation in April of 2018. During the spring of this year they made a second installation, this time on an island called Öland in a village called Torslunda. Malin Davou from Trafikverket has made statements on the local public tv news, svt, available in Swedish here and here as well as on public radio, Sveriges radio, here.
The next installation is well on its way in Hammarstrand, a village further north.
In both Hammarstrand and Torslunda the Actibumps are installed next to schools to ensure a safe traffic situation for the school children.
The results from Torslunda have been as good as can be. The road has a speed limit of 40 km/h and the 85th-percentile speeds are already at 42 km/h and 39 km/h in the two directions respectively. A result that has been achieved very quickly!
We recently initiated a collaboration with Hordaland fylkeskommune (Hordaland county) and Statens Vegvesen, The Norwegian Public Roads Administration, in Norway. They are now prepped to install two Actibumps on a major road called Nattlandsveien in the city of Bergen.
The installation site is by a zebra crossing located near housing for people with vision impairments. There are shops on both sides of the road and it is heavily used by motor vehicles, including buses and trolley buses. It is one of the major roads leading into the city centre in Bergen, a city with over 250 000 inhabitants.
Hordaland county and The Norwegian Public Roads Administration have also chosen to use out newly developed traffic counting and vehicle classification system. An easy and cheap way to get high quality data all year round where you have an Actibump installed.
