Arctic Challenge - Automated driving in artic conditions
Automated driving in snowy and icy conditions, i.e. post and poles, C-ITS hybrid communication and remote driving.
Location: E8 arctic intelligent transport road corridor, Muonio, 10 km test section
Testing: Three Test Fests available for all in January 2018, October 2018 and March 2019
The final results of Arctic Challenge, investigating road transport automation in winter conditions, give solution proposals for vehicles and the Finnish road network. Automation of road traffic requires interoperability of services and adequate network connections in Arctic snow and ice conditions. Vehicle positioning can be improved with marker posts equipped with radar reflectors or radio technology as well as sensors, laser scanning and high-definition maps. Read more in the Final Report.
