What is the pilot all about?
The pilot is part of the City of Tampere’s Hiedanranta MaaS project where sustainable mobility as a service is developed. The project supported by the European Regional Development Fund also collects experiences for the development of the Hiedanranta district to be constructed.
Data from the pilot, such as driven kilometres, usage times, energy consumption and user volumes, are stored for further development. At the same time, feedback and user experiences are collected.
Your journey is safe
The vehicle operated by Roboride Oy moves at a speed of approximately 20 kilometres an hour and utilises several different technologies for autonomous driving, such as sensors, cameras and radars. These help Robo to drive along the correct route and identify others moving on the road. The vehicle moves autonomously but there is a safety driver in or near the vehicle during the pilot.
