A fleet of self-driving vehicles are now operating in Helsinki, Finland, in what autonomous driving software developer Sensible 4 describes as a first-of-a-kind pilot.

Three self-driving vehicles, an on-demand mobile app and a Remote Control Centre (RCC) are all part of the trial, making it possible to test “the whole self-driving value chain for the first time,” according to a news release. The goal of the pilot, which is part of the EU funded FABULOS-project, is to research the feasibilities of autonomous driving in a public transportation network.

All three vehicles are equipped with Sensible 4’s automated driving software and technology and will operate in Pasila, a busy business district that offers a complex testing environment. Pedestrians, trams, bicyclists and a train station will provide real-world situations for the vehicles to navigate.
