E8 - Aurora

Aurora is a public test ecosystem created to ensure intelligent and automated transport as well as solutions for road maintenance and asset management to meet the requirements of all conditions. The public test area is open for all organisations interested. It allows gathering first-hand information on how to develop both the physical and digital infrastructure to serve the needs of high-performance future transportation. Aurora is the solution when you need intelligent transport to work safely and securely in all conditions, even outside the sunny California and when it is raining cats, dogs, snow or hail!

 

Aurora is developed in close collaboration with Borealis test ecosystem managed by the Norwegian Public Road Administration. Test sections of Aurora and Borealis share the E8 corridor, one of the corridors of European Union for cross-border testing of connected and automated driving.
