AstaZero is the world’s first full-scale test facility dedicated to advanced safety research and development. All test drivers received an introduction and underwent a safety training at the AstaZero test site. The safety training included five theoretical lessons and practical test demos. This allowed the ESRs to gain hands-on experience on how to execute driving manoeuvres particularly relevant to the analysis of the vehicle lateral stability (e.g. free steer behaviour, sine sweep, double lane change).
The AstaZero Safety Training for ITEAM was organized by Volvo Cars and took place at the AstaZero proving ground in Gothenburg, Sweden on 14th August 2019.
