There are both business and collaboration opportunities with Japanese companies as the domestic automotive industry is still lagging behind to reach the third step of the automated driving roadmap. The Japanese market is highly interesting with a large automotive manufacturing industry and also from a research collaboration perspective. There is awareness in Japan of the autonomous driving progress in Sweden. Japanese automotive companies are keen to follow developments within this area in Sweden, especially the collaboration between companies, academia and government in Gothenburg.
Swedish companies in automotive related industries with unique products or services should examine opportunities arising from Japan’s ambition to retake the lead within automated driving systems and the development of the next generation of transport systems. Of potential interest to Japanese companies are products and services relating to data, security, communication and sensors.
