A week of intelligent transportation systems done

A long week of demonstrating some of the different AI project we carry out with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration is done.

It has been a long week and would not have been a sucess with the help of some of our clever students. A big thanks to Christian Skjetne, who managed this with a steady hand. He was there all week, explaining to the public, Norwegian TV2 and the Minister of Transport and Communications.

The stand included a demonstration of platooning, using our ChIRP robots.

It also included the intelligent traffic lights, and a possibility for people to drive a lorry using the Oculus 3D headset
