New technology and services enable more efficient and environmentally friendly transport and logistics systems. VTT know-how combines advanced technology and methods, business expertise and a deep understanding of value chains to deliver the transport solutions of tomorrow.
VTT: transport specialists
VTT is active in all forms of terrestrial transport, both passenger and freight. Our specific areas of expertise are road safety, transport system development, logistics, smart transport, vehicle systems and service research.
Examples of our services include transport information services and transport management development, impact assessments, simulation and calculation tools, new service concept development, extensive field operations tests, reports to support decision-making and the development of transport chains.
Building the transportation landscape of the future
VTT is building a future where transport is more of a service. The proportion of public transport and carpooling in densely populated urban areas will increase. Mobility through easy-to-use services will become a viable alternative to buying a private vehicle.
The transport landscape that we envision will be a fusion of sustainable energy sources, advanced technology, safety, high service levels, mobility alternatives and new ways of operating.
Choose VTT for technological advancement in transport
The implementation of the transport-as-a-service concept is an important change. VTT contributes to its development from the perspective of technological advancement, the structure of the service ecosystem, and evaluative research. We have developed several tools and techniques for improving road safety and the transport system that have been successfully implemented both in Finland and abroad.
The most notable technologies that VTT has developed include the automated emergency messaging system (eCall), interoperable systems, and technologies that pertain to road conditions and ice detection. On the freight transport side, our strength lies in developing technologies that promote the safety and automation of transport chains.
