The industry’s own demo tunnel
The Demo Tunnel is set up as a tunnel in normal operation. It offers the opportunity to both demonstrate equipment and to test and develop new products and solutions.
The climate inside provides optimal conditions for testing in an authentic tunnel environment, and the basic technical infrastructure is the most cutting edge within tunnel technology. We are also installing a mini traffic control centre which will allow us to test signal and warning systems for steering, regulation and monitoring (an ICS system) without regular traffic.
A launch arena
The demo tunnel is intended to be an arena for knowledge exchange in the sector, facilitating courses and training. It is a learning arena for contractors, advisors and road owners who want to acquire the latest knowledge, insights and training. Educational institutions, emergency services and others with an interest in tunnel technology and safety will also be able to learn and benefit from the Demo Tunnel. The tunnel will also eventually be linked with a digital twin. This will pave the way for new possibilities within real-time modelling, scenario development and virtual training.
Broad collaboration and engagement
The Demo Tunnel is supported by Rogaland County Council and Innovation Norway. VIA has led the project, but the idea has only been possible thanks to the engagement, equipment and valuable input of our members. The facility is a public-benefit project for the industry.
