Press Release: The long road to getting AVs on the streets of Denmark

The legal framework for pilot projects with autonomous vehicles in Denmark stepped into force three years ago. Here’s our operator experiences so far.

To this date, only one project has been on the streets in Denmark, while two other approvals have been given. In the practical implementation of the law, a great number of barriers have appeared.

Announcement: Transport Minister inaugurates the self-driving bus in Aalborg East

On 5 March 2020, Aalborg East will write Danish history. The first pilot project with self-driving buses on Danish roads will be inaugurated here, and Transport Minister Benny Engelbrecht will be there to cut the cord.

In December 2019, after almost 5 years of planning and application process, permission was granted for the first time in Denmark to conduct trials with self-driving buses. Since then, Holo has been busy with tests, setting up digital infrastructure and more tests, and on 5 March, together with Aalborg Municipality, Holo will open the route to the public.

“We’ve been working long and hard to get everything in place for the big day, when we roll out for the first time on Danish roads. The paperwork for approval is one thing, but preparing the route itself and setting up the digital infrastructure is another. Our operators, who will have their daily work in and around the buses, are looking forward to hitting the streets and showing what the self-driving buses can do” says CEO Peter Sorgenfrei from Holo.

All interested are welcome to attend the opening party at Sebbersundvej 2A, 9220 Aalborg East

Snart kan du møde Torben i Smartbussen i Aalborg Øst

Published by Holo

Det første selvkørende forsøgsprojekt på dansk jord har nu fået den endelige godkendelse fra transportministeren. Operatør Torben Nyman er begejstret over snart at kunne byde beboerne i Aalborg Øst velkommen ombord på SmartBussen.

Nyheden om transportministerens underskrift på en bekendtgørelse har været længe ventet for Aalborg Øst-beboeren Torben Nyman. 

Han blev ansat for over et år siden til at være operatør i den selvkørende bus, som skal køre på Astrupstien i hans eget nabolag, men fordi godkendelsesprocessen har trukket i langdrag, har han indtil nu arbejdet på skift i Holos søsterprojekter i Göteborg og Oslo. Her har han opnået en driftserfaring, som må siges at være temmelig unik: Han har nemlig arbejdet over 900 timer i og omkring de selvkørende busser.
