Lyyli Living Lab – A Unique Testing Environment for Urban Mobility
Lyyli Living Lab is a internationally unique, real-life operational tram system equipped for experimenting, testing, and promoting next generation urban mobility solutions. It allows various parties to cooperate on the experiment-driven development of urban mobility solutions in a real operating environment: the Tampere Tramway system, the Tramway Mock-up, and the very first Lyyli tram car.
Lyyli in Brief
The Lyyli Living Lab project was launched in Tampere in the spring of 2022. The purpose of the Lyyli Living Lab project is to create a development, experiment, testing and marketing environment and the related services. This will make it possible to develop urban mobility solutions and obtain references in a real operating environment: the Tampere Tramway system, the Tramway Mock-up, and the very first Lyyli tram car.
Tampere Tramway Ltd is the host organisation for the project, which is scheduled to last for 4–6 years. The project is being implemented in cooperation with the City of Tampere, Business Tampere, Skoda, and the University of Tampere.
Lyyli Living Lab supports the City of Tampere’s goal of building a sustainable and smart Tampere region in which housing, living and travel are carbon neutral and services function digitally, smoothly and in a user-oriented manner.
