Groningen, NL is piloting AVs

The ambitious “AT-North” or “@north” consortium brought together the three provinces of northeast Holland ⁠— Groningen, Fryslân, and Drenthe ⁠— to market the region as an integrated pilot region for automated transport “on the road, by rail, by air”, and “on the water”.

The first effort, Groningen’s self-driving shuttle pilot, got underway in August 2018. A Navya shuttle ran from the Scheemda Village bus stop in Oldambt Municipality to the Ommelander Ziekenhuis Hospital entrance. The pilot was extended to run until the end of 2019 one leg of the route offers an additional shuttle with wheelchair transport services to visitors. This project was a collaboration between Province of Groningen, the Ommelander Ziekenhuis, Arriva, and the RDW (the Dutch Vehicle and Driver Licensing Authority).
