Real-life observations from full electric articulated city buses built on Information Technology for Public Transport (ITxPT) specificationIn early 2017 Volvo Buses and Västtrafik (PTA) together with Lindholmen Science Park initiated a multi stakeholder collaboration with the aim to accelerate the introduction of the standardized IT architecture as specified by ITxPT - Information Technology for Public Transport, ITxPT, an international association that promotes the implementation of standards for plug-and-play IT-systems. The collaboration resulted in RIVSILON, a collaborative project, which was granted funding during 2018. In addition to the initiating partners above, Actia, Consat, Ericsson, Fleetech, Hogia, Icomera, Keolis, Mobitec, Pilotfish, RISE and Transdev participate in the project, which is a part of the ElectriCity cooperation in Gothenburg.
