Karlstad municipality started their Actibumps

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!

For more information please read or listen to the local public radio report from the grand opening, in Swedish, here.

Trafikverket presents: active speedbumps

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.

Swedish Transport Administration to activate their Actibumps

At 11 o’clock April 24th the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) will activate their very first Actibump installation on the E65 road, Dragongatan, in the city of Ystad.

Their press invite says there is a lot of traffic on E65 road, Dragongatan, in the city of Ystad and they have made many improvements to improve the traffic situation and the accessibility, primarily to and from the harbour in Ystad. On this road they are choosing to use what they call an active speedbump, what we call the Actibump.

Trafikverket say in their press invite that it’s a good test site since the street Dragongatan is part of the European road network with international transit traffic towards Ystad harbour, where there are issues concerning traffic safety, accessibility and noise.

In the press invite Emilia Löfgren, technical manager at the office of planning and community development at Ystad municipality says that Dragongatan is an important link through Ystad where a smooth traffic flow is important as well as the possibility to cross the road. She says a reconstruction including traffic islands has been made and that makes it possible to cross one lane at a time. With that change and the active speedbump the passages become simpler and safer compared to the previous road layout.

  • Do it right and you pass on level road
  • Do it wrong and you get a physical reminder
  • A fair treatment regardless of vehicle type
  • An even traffic flow at a safe speed
  • Accessibility for all

Edeva AB is the inventor and vendor of the Actibump system, an intelligent traffic safety system. Actibump is a robust system that increases road safety and accessibility while lowering emissions and noise. Actibump leaves the road level for vehicles driving at, or under, the legal speed limit. Speeding vehicles activate a hatch, integrated into the road, that lowers a few centimetres creating an inverted speed bump.
Actibump is installed in a number of places, for example in Linköping, Uppsala, Malmö, Västerås, Helsingborg and on the Öresund bridge, in Sweden. At the end of 2017 four Actibumps were installed at Curtin University in Perth, Australia. In 2018 the first two Actibumps in the road network of the Swedish Transport Administration were started, on E65 in Ystad, Sweden.

About Edeva

Result based innovation

The Actibump is a unique invention with a global market. It has been developed to deliver a certain result. A solution that made people maintain the right speed, without forcing any vehicle type to slow down and without disturbing the buses was requested. We invented the Actibump that delivers this result, and more. You no longer need to choose between not doing anything and doing something that creates other problems. This is how we like to work.


Edeva is a member of CleanTech Östergötland
We aim to contribute to a liveable and sustainable city and society, conducive to a healthy life. An Actibump installation decreases the emissions from the passing vehicles since they can maintain an even speed. It also decreases the noise.
