Project partner VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd introduced a RobustSENSE demonstrator vehicle in two well visited events in Finland.

At the end of September VTT organised a media event introducing the current research activities, including the RobustSENSE project, to 100 media representatives in Espoo, Finland. VTT’s test vehicle was also showcased in one of the leading technical fairs in Finland, Tekniikka 2016 Exhibition, at the beginning of November.

After the events the test car received lot of media coverage both in the national newspapers and in the main television news, being titled as “Finland’s first test licensed robot car”. 

VTT’s test vehicle is built on Citroën C4 and it uses functions like laser scanner, thermal and stereo camera, driver distraction monitor, and radar. These sensing systems are also used for testing within the RobustSENSE project. Next spring, the car can be seen on public roads as VTT will be testing the autonomous functions in city traffic in the Tampere region.
