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.
We are back! We are restarting the demonstrators of autonomous vehicles for public transport. Our site at Ormøya is operational with 3 shuttles and max 3 passengers.
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
