Den autonome kjørepiloten går i Norge

Sensible 4, et finsk selvkjørende programvareselskap, forbereder seg på et nytt pilotprosjekt i den norske bladet. Selskapet sier at det har kartlagt den foreslåtte pilotruten med testkjøringer og autonome Toyota-kjøretøyer under den harde norske vinteren i begynnelsen. Piloten vil utvikle en del av feltprøvingsfasen av det EU-finansierte FABULOS-prosjektet (Future Automated Bus Urban Level Operational System).

Prosjektet er en direkte videreføring av det forrige autonome kjøreprogrammet i Helsingfors, Finland, utført våren 2020. Gestalt-fasen vil introdusere de nye Toyota Pros-kjøretøyene, en revidert versjon av selskapets autonome kjøreprogramvare og on-demand kollektivtransportfunksjoner. Den planlagte ruten er 3,3 km lang og vil operere uten passasjerer om bord i henhold til forskrift fastsatt av Statens vegvesen.

The company notes that the environmental and topographical conditions differ between Finland and Norway, with the latest phase introducing steep hills, open roads and narrow suburban streets to the test program. Currently, the pilot location at Gjesdal, near the city of Stavanger, is covered in snow; however, these conditions are ideal for Sensible 4’s tests as its software has been developed specifically to handle demanding winter conditions that would defeat most other ADAS.

“We are excited to start testing our software in a new kind of surroundings which we don’t have in Finland. We don’t see it causing our system any major issues and the Toyota vehicles perform well with steep hills and snowy roads,” remarked project manager Aleksi Tepponen.

Also under test will be the project remote control center (RCC), located in Ålgård, Gjesdal. The RCC’s role is to provide remote assistance and customer service to autonomous vehicles and their passengers. The facility will also be used to test fleet management operations, which will be vital for the widespread rollout of autonomous services.

The pilot is being conducted in collaboration with Spanish startup Shotl, which is developing an autonomous, on-demand shuttle service, also under the FABULOS umbrella.

“We’re happy to begin our first autonomous driving pilots abroad. Autonomous driving on open roads is an essential part of testing our software and collecting valuable data for future development,” concluded Harri Santamala, CEO of Sensible 4.
