Field test tracks
for autonomous driving
in a real environment


Test autonomous driving on field test tracks

On the Digitrans field test routes (motorway junction: A1 / A7, as well as Linz Airport and Enns harbour), data can be obtained for the development of the approval processes for autonomous driving. In addition, intelligent infrastructures can be developed and automated transport modes can be tested in real traffic. The closed test area – the test track in St. Valentin – also offers additional options for testing autonomous vehicles and commercial vehicles on asphalt and off-road routes.
