Swedish state and industry back autonomous vehicle testing facility

The Swedish government, in partnership with the private sector, is backing a test facility for autonomous vehicle technologies – with its eyes on the global prize of creating an international standard for testing driverless vehicles.

Backed by the Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) and Chalmers University of Technology, the collaborative project will build the capacity and global status of AstaZero 5G, the self-driving auto testing specialist jointly controlled by state-owned RISE and Chalmers.
