Our Project Partners are having a meeting in Vejle, Denmark. Interesting discussions are going on as different work packages are proceeding from preliminary work towards procurement and actual leasing of automated vehicles for demo cities.
According to plans the first automated minibuses will be driving in Kongsberg, Norway, this September onwards for a nine months period. There are plans for Helsinki and Tallinn to have a long period trials in 2019 and short period demos in Zemgale, Latvia and Gdansk, Poland in addition to Vejle, Denmark, are taking place in 2019.
Before opening the “robotbus” routes for public, a lot of questions are to be solved. Legalities, insurances, test driving permissions, practical traffic arrangements and collaboration of project partners shall lead Sohjoa Baltic buses on their routes.
