AstaZero

The test track AstaZero outside Borås is an open environment for all research in road safety, self-driving vehicles and related areas. You can also organize onsite educational activities, seminars and on-track demonstrations. Astazero is owned by Chalmers and RiSE and can be booked by anyone in the industry.

Examples of previous research and education projects at AstaZero

At the AstaZero test track, a mock-up of a city junction has been used to simulate a real-world traffic environment with both autonomous and manually-driven vehicles negotiating with each other and adjusting their speeds in a cross intersection.
Building a safer driverless future

In this video we see three cars heading for an intersection, at a speed of 50 km/h, and passing the intersection almost simultaneously. The self-driving cars are initially on a collision course, but negotiate with each other and adjust their speeds to avoid collisions and maximize the traffic flow.

There are both economic and environmental benefits with really long truck trailers. But what about traffic safety? At Astazero, Chalmers has tested new technology that makes double trailers more stable.
