ALP.Lab is the latest accredited Euro NCAP Laboratory for Active Safety
Did you know …
… that Europe’s most versatile testing areas for autonomous driving are located in Austria? ALP.Lab and Digitrans offer a broad range of testing and data services as well as testing grounds, research vehicles and support for various use cases.
ALP.Lab – Data and testing services
Organisations and research facilities have been testing automated vehicles in Austria since 2016. This is particularly the case in Styria, home to Europe’s most diverse testing region for autonomous driving on private and public test tracks. ALP.Lab offers a continuous digital test chain in a complete simulation environment, for urban and rural environments as well as highways. This includes, amongst other advantages, access to a unique, European-wide and fully developed testing tunnel. ALP.Lab is also the exclusive Euro NCAP test partner for Active Safety – using a brand new Euro NCAP approved test track in Upper Austria (by DSD).
Digitrans – The testing environment for commercial and transport vehicles
Research, testing, validation and implementation: Digitrans provides the know-how and test infrastructure for all of this. Three field test routes and one closed test area simulate different scenarios – from asphalt to off-road routes.
