Finland is offering a nationwide location for testing new connected ITS and automated vehicle technology in Arctic conditions. The Snowbox ‘test ecosystem’ is being promoted as part of the wider Aurora ITS project on the Finnish pavilion at the 2015 World Congress.

The Aurora project covers automated vehicle developments, mobility as a service, digital transport infrastructure and intelligent infrastructure asset management. The Snowbox initiative offers a test bed for all of these technological developments.

“Intelligent transport is not just for sunny climates,” says chief executive officer for Fell Lapland Business Services Reija Viinanen. “Current Finnish legislation permits advanced automation on public roads. We also offer a safe and secure site with facilities for testing prototype systems on closed roads. Both of these environments form the Snowbox test ecosystem.”
