The BMW Group has now presented the first two sections of the test track for autonomous vehicles and assistance systems at the new BMW Group Future Mobility Center in Sokolov, Czech Republic. At the new test site, which will cost around 300 million euros, BMW will develop forward-looking topics such as electrification, digitalization and automated driving. The test site is located in Karlsbad, about two and a half hours from the BMW Group’s main development site, the Research and Innovation Center (FIZ) in Munich.

Full operation of the trial operation is scheduled for mid-2023 with more than 100 employees on site. Cross-traffic assistance and behavior systems as well as emergency braking and evasive situations can be optimally tested in the New Technology Zone, an area capable of smoothing approximately 90,000 m with three separate lane entry lanes with entry and exit scenarios for testing autonomous vehicles on highways. .
