EasyMile, in partnership with Acando, will be showcasing the EZ10 driverless shuttles in demonstrations across several cities in Norway. A demonstration that was held in Kongsberg on the 29th of September, saw the Norwegian Transport Minister Ketil Solvik-Olsen taking a ride in the EZ10. The first demonstration took place at Youngstorget, in Oslo, on the 22nd of September 2016, and will run until the end of October.
The aim of the demonstrations in Norway is to show that the EZ10 driverless shuttles are safe and that it is a possible mobility solution in the future of transport in Norway. These demonstrations will also help shape future traffic regulations that will enable the operation of EZ10s in Norway.
