The Regulation presently allows the testing of the following usage cases:

  • Motorway pilot scheme with lane-change assistant
  • Self-driving minibuses
  • Self-driving military vehicles

Other usage cases can be incorporated in the Regulation through amendments as required and after recommendation by the Council of Experts.

Test running to test automated systems on public roads in accordance with the automated driving Regulation currently looks like this:

  1. Interested parties can submit a standardised test application to the contact point for automated mobility (AustriaTech).
  2. The contact point will make an initial assessment of permissibility according to the Regulation, or any necessary amendment to the Regulation, respectively.
  3. An independent Council of Experts, with extensive interdisciplinary expertise, also provides advice. The evaluation by the Council of Experts takes place on a quarterly basis.
    If the test case mentioned is not covered by the existing Regulation, it is possible to incorporate the case by amending the Regulation.
  4. The BMK will issue a temporary permit on the basis of the test application and offer advisory expertise.
