The A2 highway section south of Grazis equipped with numerous sensors and detectors along the motorway, providing
extended data and testing possibilities, which was awarded with the Austrian State Prize for Mobility in Dec 2019.

This built-in digital infrastructure along the route covers the ISAD levels (Infrastructure Support Levels for Automated Driving) classified by road operators.

This enables CCAM (Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility) applications to be tested safely on public roads. But the infrastructure can also be used for traffic monitoring to analyze real traffic to experience from human drives.

Proving ground are available in AT, DE, HU and CRO, full service according to your test requirements is offered.

Do you know how reliable your sensor works? We do sensor benchmarking and long-term tests

With the ALP.Lab mobile Hilplatform you can test, record, and analyze the performance of sensors, components, control units and the interplay with obstacles before the vehicle prototype is available.

Thanks to the exact repetition of driving scenarios and trajectories, you can find the optimal sensor position and orientation more quickly due to flexible mounting of the sensors on the SPIDER

Benchmark different sensor manufacturers under selected harsh environmental conditions to get the best result.

You want to validate automated vehicles on public roads?

The ALP.Lab test region comprises more than 400 km of public roads with typical Austrian road characteristics. Curves with different radii, gradients, tunnels, toll stations, border crossings, bridges, multi-lane routes and much more.

A digital twin supports planning, which can also be used for simulations.

ALP.Lab – The test region for automated and connected mobility

The Austrian test region offers a unique and holistic infrastructure for developing and testing automated and connected vehicles and functions.
