Future Mobility Center

The Future Mobility Center (FMC) at Halmstad University is a new initiative to conduct open innovation, focusing on academic frontline research and performing truly multidisciplinary co-creation within mobility related services. This is intended to offer a valuable alternative innovation method, as compared to traditional company-based internal development.

Leading the world to sustainability and life quality, through smart mobility solutions.


On December 18, 2019, Volvo Cars together with Future Mobility Center at Halmstad University secured the financing of a new industrial PhD student at the researcher school Smart Industry Sweden. The PhD project “Collaboration and Delegation Between Humans and AI” will contribute with increased insights on the interplay between man and machine, and specifically how methods within AI may improve product quality through human interplay with intelligent agents.

The event gathered companies, organisations and institutions working within the transportation sector. The vision and functionality of FMC was presented, as well as information about products in development.

”The FMC launch event was truly successful. More than 30 mobility-related organisations participated and showed a huge interest in this new concept, surpassing all of our expectations.
