In August 2020, the Norwegian Research Council assigned Safe4 with the responsibility of building the digital ecosystem “Lås Opp” – Safe Unlock. This is a collaborative project funded and carried out by SINTEF (one of Europe’s largest independent research organizations) and a consortium of industrial players. The project has a four year timeframe (2021-2024).
Key targets, in addition to developing the solution, will be to evaluate transport optimization measures related to CO2 footprint, and to monitor consumer behaviour in order to find out how consumers adapt to remotely granting In-Home Services, such as messengers, healthcare workers and craftsmen, access to their private homes.
The UN’s sustainability goals for innovation and infrastructure state that investments in e.g. transport and information technology are crucial to creating sustainable development. In line with this, the Ecosystem in Safe Unlock is a digital infrastructure that promotes growth, productivity and efficiency. The greatest potential for emission reduction lies in increased coordination between carriers.
