The construction of a physical test facility for connected mobility is planned at Frigården in Stjørdal municipality.
The goal for the facility is to make Trøndelag and Norway a natural place for research, development, testing, verification and approval of autonomous transportation technology – particularly aimed at road transport.
All within a dense area, we offer
Headed for the future
What do we work towards?
We want major vehicle manufacturers and technology developers to discover Trøndelag and Norway. Not only as a pilot market for electric vehicles, but also as a location for testing, development and validation of connected and automated driving.
We want Trøndelag and Norway to take part, by making a positive difference, in the industrial development of modern road transportation – the road towards digitalization and automation to achieve seamless, safe and efficient transportation as well as accommodate for a quicker transition to sustainable options.
- We want to mobilize research and innovation
- More strategic collaboration
- Make Trøndelag a testing and piloting arena for automation and autonomy
- Sharing models and seamless travel
- Interactive intelligent transportation systems
We will be the world’s first facility to offer open and closed testing areas where you have access to all four seasons – year around. The facility utilizes renewable energy for its electric road technology (ERS). This makes the facility well suited for electric vehicles, inductive charging and ITS. The facility is designed for testing autonomous vehicles and autonomy in collaboration with automatic driver assistance functions in vehicles.
