The share of Nordic inhabitants living in urban areas is growing by the day with increasing challenges for transportation systems. A new report by Telia Company and Arthur D. Little shows that there is a risk that e.g. Sweden might only reach half of its goal of doubling the share of public transportation by 2020. At the same time, there is a range of smart public transport solutions available to mitigate the problem.
Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly in the Nordics. According to a new report by Telia Company and Arthur D. Little we now have close to three connected things per person, a number which is expected to double by 2021. The report shows that the value of the Nordic IoT market is set to more than double from today’s MEUR 7,000 to MEUR 17,000 in 2021 while it will triple in the Baltics, from MEUR 740 to MEUR 2,200.
