In a further step, expansion work has commenced on the existing proving ground located on the premises of the Magna Powertrain Engineering Centre Steyr in Upper Austria. In this way, automated vehicle technologies can be tested under difficult weather and road conditions.

In the long term, the expansion of the proving ground should help to increase transport and traffic safety, increase technology acceptance and promote the implementation of climate-neutral freight mobility concepts. In turn, this should lead to new and cost-efficient transport solutions and sustainable business models for the future of automated transport.

A broad range of traffic scenarios under real conditions as well as sensors, cameras and software will be tested and validated under adverse weather and road conditions. Connected and cooperative driving will continue to be subject to precise tests using C-ITS and 5G and further developed. The generated testing data will be made available for R&D purposes in order to create a basis for the certifications of autonomous and automated vehicles.
