PILOTS

PUBLIC PILOTS

Sensible 4’s autonomous vehicles drive two pilots in Norway beginning in January 2021.

Pilot in Ski, near Oslo, Norway 2021

Sensible 4, Ruter, mobility company Holo, and Toyota Motor Europe (TME) are collaborating to trial self-driving vehicles as an integrated part of the public transport service in the Oslo region in Norway for one year.

The purpose of the self-driving vehicle trials is to explore ways to integrate autonomous vehicles into Ruter’s public transport service and reduce the need for private car use in the area. The service will be called line 529 and will operate for a period of one year, until end of 2021. By operating for such a long time it enables the partners to thoroughly test and ensure that the software truly works in all weather conditions in real-life situations.

According to the plan, the people in Oslo will be able to start using the new travel offer in the first quarter of 2021. Until then, the two vehicles are first going to map the area and then carry out a total of five hundred hours of test operation without passengers on board, which is required by the Norwegian road authorities.

 

FABULOS pilot in Gjesdal, Norway 2021

Self-driving car traffic at Gjesdal is part of FABULOS project. The pilot is studying public transport based on autonomous vehicles. During the pilot, three autonomous vehicles drive at Ålgård and Myrengveien. The pilot ends at March fourth 2021. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only two passengers can be taken on board the vehicle, three if the passengers represent the family or same group of people already being in contact with each other.

In the pilot we use regular factory-built vehicles with retrofitted autonomous driving technology. In addition to a safety driver in every vehicle, they are driven under the supervision of the Remote Control Center (RCC). All-weather autonomous driving software and RCC are developed by Finnish Sensible 4. The pilot is driven in collaboration with the municipality of Gjesdal, FABULOS, Shotl, Mobility Forus, and Toyota Motor Europe.

The Pilot is funded by the European Union, under Horizon 2020 program (grant agreement No. 780371)

 

Pilot in Helsinki, Pasila is now over

Last day of FABULOS Pasila pilot was Friday, 3rd of July 2020.

The pilot included both driving under schedule and demand based driving. Due the situation with COVID-19 we only took two passengers to the autonomous GACHA vehicle.

The pilot was open for the public and free of charge.
