Living Lab 2: Near work, smart mobility
Mistra SAMS second Living Lab investigates the effects of having a professional work hub near the home of the participant, alongside a digital platform for mobility and accessibility, and incentives for more sustainable mobility behavior.
Participants in the study have access to a professional work space across the street from Tullinge station. There are 14 desk spaces in the work hub, which can be booked via an online application. Work spaces have ergonomic chairs, desks that can be raised and lowered, large screens, keyboards and mice.
The work hub also has a conference room for 8 people, equipped with camera and screens for videoconferencing, as well as three sound-proofed rooms for telephone or video calls. These rooms are also booked via the app.
Participants in study also have access to two electric bicycles and one electric cargo bicycle. The bikes are free to use by the participants, and are also booked via the app.
Further services and incentives for more sustainable accessibility pratices will be added as the project develops.

Mistra SAMS aimsto create a shared arena in which digital services, processes, and new ways of working can be developed and tested with user representatives and researchers.”
