Stavanger, NO is piloting AVs
Located at the intersection of the municipalities of Sandnes, Stavanger, and Sola, Forus Næringspark AS is an industrial park built on a former airport site and housing more than 3,000 businesses and 40,000 employees. In partnership with Kolumbus AS, the region’s public transport provider, and AV maker EasyMile, Forus began testing a driverless shuttle service in January 2017. The two-year project consists of three phases, culminating in deployment of a circulator service operating on a 4 km route throughout the park. Officials hope that the pilot project will provide valuable input as Norway shapes its laws regarding autonomous/unmanned vehicles.
