Project type: On the road


    The robotTUNER company, the Province of Groningen and Metropool Regio Den Haag Rotterdam (MRDH) are the initiators of the COLUMBUSS project (COnnected Level 5 UnManned BUSSes). Automating and letting electric PT busses drive autonomously via an open source auto pilot are key in this project. There have been experiments with a microbus for 2 people,…

  • Sensor configurator

    Just like human beings autonomous vehicles need to orientate themselves. This happens via sensors allowing a vehicle to know where it is and thus orientate itself. This information determines the speed and route a vehicle chooses. The sensors therefore need to be highly accurate and frequent: the tiniest inaccuracies can have severe or even fatal…

  • Autonomous Transportation Lab (AT-Lab)

    For the purpose of testing autonomous road transportation the robotTUNER company has developed a safe experimental environment based on a Renault Twizy. The Twizy is automatised (aka drive-by-wire) and connected to Green Dino driving simulation software, thus creating a so-called Digital Twin (a digital replica of an industrial process). The first field experiment with the…

  • Bourtange

    In Bourtange, we are planning to transport visitors, school children, and possibly also packages from the parking lots outside the fortified town to the centre of the fortress, through to the parking lot on the other side. If possible, we will also drive on to the elementary school just outside the fortress.

  • Ommelander Ziekenhuis Scheemda

    At the new Ommelander Hospital in Scheemda, an autonomous vehicle will start shuttling passenger between the nearest bus stop and the hospital’s main entrance (approximately 1.5 km). The pilot is scheduled to run for a half a year period. If this pilot proves to be successful, the shuttle service shall be implemented permanently.
