ZalaZone: Inauguration of the Road Surface Suitable for Testing Autonomous Vehicles

2021.08.05.

The automotive test track has reached 90 percent completion and is set to be finished by the end of the year.

A new component of the ZalaZone automotive test track was unveiled, marked by a press conference at the site on Thursday, according to zaol.hu. The 70 x 600 meter surface is designed for testing ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). This ADAS surface at the ZalaZone test track serves as a dedicated site for such tests and was constructed by Duna Aszfalt Zrt.

During the examination of advanced driver assistance systems, autonomous vehicles can be tested in various traffic situations. Typically, these scenarios simulate traffic situations with a risk of collision. Autonomous vehicles and dummies represent obstacles, with dummies including passenger cars, adult and child pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. Any potential collision with these dummies causes no damage to either the test vehicle or the dummy, as the dummies, which break apart upon impact, can be reassembled.

Ongoing Testing

It was stated at the briefing that the automotive test track has reached 90 percent completion. The currently planned construction phase is to be completed by the end of the year, with the handover scheduled for March. However, this is not the final state; further development will continue with new investments expected based on demand. Currently, tests are ongoing, with five companies simultaneously able to test seventy vehicles under various conditions.

Duna Aszfalt plays a major role in the ZalaZone project, having implemented numerous significant track elements at the test track, which is considered unique in Europe. In July, the first element of the military off-road track, constructed in collaboration with Szabadics Zrt., was handed over. Recently, the motorway section built by Duna Aszfalt was also completed and has been in use since June. The test track-specific elements, central to the ZalaZone project, were designed by Főmterv Zrt., while ZÁÉV Zrt. played a significant role in high-rise construction, executing several buildings.
