The Digibus and the test track in Koppl are the first cornerstones of a test environment for automated, local mobility in Salzburg.

The question is no longer whether the automated mobility will come, but how we design automated mobility in the future in order to provide an efficient, environmentally compatible and affordable mobility system. An open test environment enables shared learning for all parties involved in order to answer open questions about automated mobility in the coming years, thus enabling targeted development and decision making.
