Drive Me

‘Drive Me – Self-driving cars for sustainable mobility’ is the world´s first large-scale autonomous driving pilot project.

100 self-driving cars will use public roads in everyday driving projects around the Swedish city of Gothenburg. Autonomous vehicles is an important solution for reaching the Vision Zero.

The project is a joint initiative between Volvo Car Group, the Swedish Transport Administration, the Swedish Transport Agency, Lindholmen Science Park and the City of Gothenburg.

'Drive Me' will focus on a number of areas, such as:

  • How autonomous vehicles bring societal and economic benefits by improving traffic efficiency, the traffic environment and road safety
  • Infrastructure requirements for autonomous driving
  • Typical traffic situations suitable for autonomous vehicles
  • Customers' confidence in autonomous vehicles
  • How surrounding drivers interact smoothly with a self-driving car

The first cars are expected to be on the roads in Gothenburg by 2017.
