Dynamic speed bumps crossing the ocean from Sweden to Australia
The tech company Edeva from Sweden has developed a dynamic speed bump, called the Actibump, that has proven its efficiency through years of use in Sweden.
The Actibump product has turned some heads in the international traffic safety business and will now be exported to Australia. Curtin University in Perth have ordered two Actibump systems for installation on their campus in order to provide accessibility at a safe speed. Actibump is a dynamic speed bump that is only a speed bump for those who speed.
“We are very happy to make this first export”, says CEO David Eskilsson. “Our system has gotten attention all over the world this past year and it has generated a fair amount of inquiries from almost every part of the world. We are currently in discussions with companies, municipalities and regions all over the world”, he says.
Christian Ottosson, project manager at Edeva, is responsible for installation and maintenance. “We can deliver anywhere in the world since the systems are connected to the internet and the monitoring is highly automated. It requires very little effort on site so we can easily train the organisation that will handle the systems when they are installed”, says Christian.
There are currently 30 Actibump units installed in Sweden, in Malmo, Linkoping, Vasteras, Helsingborg, Uppsala and on the toll station at the Øresund bridge between Sweden and Denmark.
“These 30 units installed in Sweden prove that the Actibump is a robust system that creates a safe traffic situation”, says David, “it will be interesting to see where in the world the next order will come from”, he adds.
Edeva develops traffic systems for liveable cities to help customers create accessible, safe and secure traffic situations. The company works on a global market with municipalities, regions, cities, public entities, universities, logistics companies, harbours, airports, industries and toll stations. The company was founded in 2009 in Linköping, Sweden.
