Transportation is one of the main sources of energy-related carbon dioxide emission, and the annual vehicle production has sky-rocketed globally the last years.
In Norway, a country with far-reaching distances, the railway service plays a key role in public transportation. The Norwegian population looks at a growth of about one million people the next couple of years – creating a demand for new and smart solutions for transportation.
One railway with two trails can transport as many passengers as a four-lane highway. The Norwegian Railway Service – NSB (Norges Statsbaner) aims to provide sustainable and intelligent mobility solutions for the society.

NSB sees it as one of their main contributions to meet the environmental challenges the world faces by transporting more people and goods by train.
