Projekt Sohjoa Baltic
Project has ended 10/2020
Sohjoa Baltic researched, promoted and piloted automated driverless electric minibuses as part of the public transport chain, especially for the first/last mile connectivity.
The project brought knowledge and competence on organizing environmentally friendly and smart automated public transport. It provided guidelines on legal and organizational setup needed for running such a service in an efficient way.
Sohjoa Baltic consortium partners were from Finland, Estonia, Sweden, Latvia, Germany, Poland, Norway and Denmark with area and public transportation planning expertise as well as legal expertise combined with strong technical understanding which are the requirements for enabling autonomous traffic.
Sohjoa Baltic brought autonomous small buses to drive demo routes in six Baltic Sea Region cities in 2018-2020.
Autonomiczny minibus porusza się wzdłuż trasy niczym winda. Skanuje on otoczenie i wie, kiedy zwolnić lub całkiwicie się zatrzymać, jeżeli na swej drodze napotka przeszkodę. Podobnie, jak przy wprowadzaniu do użytku wind, tak na pokładzie minibusa podczas jazd testowych obecny jest operator.
The Sohjoa Baltic project was funded from Interreg – Baltic Sea Region programme.
