Digitales Testfeld BMVI

As the NDR reports, the State of Lower Saxony wants to build up a test ring for autonomous driving on the highways 2, 7 and 39 in the space between Hanover, Brunswick and Salzgitter. The Federal Ministery of Transport and Digital Infrastructure confirmed this towards NDR 1 Niedersachsen and NDR refers continuing to an interview with Olaf Lies with the HAZ.
