Finland's regulation allows already at this point to test automated driving. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and a consortium of industrial partners (Tieto, TTS Oy, Taipale Telematics, HERE), supported by local and national authorities (the City of Tampere and Trafi), have set up the UrbanAutoTest project, which has as main objective to facilitate companies to develop and test connected and automated driving functionalities.
Tampere is located about 200 km north of Helsinki. Weather in Tampere is challenging in winter times due to snow, ice and slush conditions, which can change rapidly.
The project has generated a test environment, consisting of closed and public route test track with test equipment, portfolio of verification and validation, technology research and consultancy services and growing portfolio of test vehicles and tools.
