Three new innovation projects selected for Test in Tallinn program

Three new innovation projects selected for Test in Tallinn program

Tallinn offers both Estonian and international companies the opportunity to test their sustainable and smart city-compatible products and services in the city. In the latest round of the Test in Tallinn program, seven applications were evaluated, with three selected to move forward to the testing phase soon.

Kalle Killar, City Enterprise Director in Tallinn, stated that the selected innovation projects highlight the city's ambition to be a testing ground and implementer of new technologies. "We are delighted to collaborate with innovative companies to explore solutions that enhance the quality of life for our residents and visitors."

To date, 25 innovation projects have been initiated under the Test in Tallinn program. The most recent round selected projects testing noise sensors, an automated bus lane monitoring platform, and a new type of traffic cameras.

The Spanish company Cesva plans to test noise sensors. The devices, already extensively tested in Barcelona, will now be trialed in Tallinn's unique geographic location to evaluate them in a northern climate. While existing noise maps have focused on traffic noise through modeling, comprehensive real-time data on noise are currently lacking. The company's value proposition focuses on smart noise management to plan and implement noise reduction activities and assess their effectiveness., a technology company based in Ireland, specializes in AI-based mobility solutions that can detect misuse of bus lanes, among other applications.

The Estonian company Signaal aims to test two new types of cameras, Vector P2P and MiniRack, in Tallinn. These cameras will be used for the first time in an urban area in Estonia to monitor average speed sections and bus lane misuse.

Tallinn supports the testing of innovation projects in the urban environment on a case-by-case basis for up to 12 months. The city provides assistance in finding suitable locations and facilities (city properties, objects, buildings); identifying the appropriate city departments and contacts for validating and implementing innovation projects; and providing access to necessary open data where possible.

Applications for the Test in Tallinn program can be submitted at any time, with the innovation commission meeting quarterly to select new collaboration projects. More information is available at
