Become a test passenger at DTU

Are you a regular visitor to DTU Campus in Lyngby? Maybe you’re a student, employee or someone else who frequently visits the campus? If so, we’d like to ask for your help. We’re looking for test passengers for our trial of three self-driving shuttles that will operate for six months in the south of the campus from the beginning of 2021.

You probably know how important it is to get input for your research, work or your projects. That’s why we at the LINC project are asking for your help. LINC will explore how passengers perceive and adapt to self-driving shuttles, how they can become part of our cities and how we ensure an operation that suits the needs of passengers.

You can sign up as a test passenger on the right hand side.


Small requirements, big benefits

We ask all test passengers who sign up to:

  • download the LINC app. It gives you information about the shuttle, while giving us anonymous information about your rides on the shuttle and your journey. Before we start driving at DTU Campus Lyngby the app will be ready and we will message you to ask you to download the app.
  • ride the shuttle a couple of times each week during the six-month test period.
  • respond to 5-6 questionnaires via the app during the six-month period.

During the test period you will also be able to participate in::

  • Competitions
  • lotteries

Competitions and lotteries will primarily take place on the LINCs Facebook page. In addition, you will be one of the first to get to try out a self-driving shuttle, get an insight into the anonymized results of the test and be able to get to your destination at DTU without getting wet shoes.

Self-driving with at steward

Because it’s a test, the self-driving shuttles will only be allowed to drive a maximum of 15 kilometers per hour. Therefore, your experience will not be a fast track to future. But your help as a test passenger will be invaluable in understanding the technology and integrating it in the cities of the future – and you will have access to free public transport.

To get permission to operate the self-driving shuttles among cars, cyclists and pedestrians at the DTU Campus, we are required to have a steward on board. The steward does not drive the shuttle, but they can take over the steering with a joystick if an unforeseen situation requires it.


How you sign up

Do you want to help develop the self-driving future? Click here – or through the sign up form at the top of this page. Later on we will send you a request to download the app. We cannot yet state the precise date for when you can board a self-driving shuttle at DTU as it depends on our approval from the Danish Road Directorate – but we anticipate that it will be in the end of 2020. We will keep all signed up test passengers informed.
