NUVE-LAB – Developing Autonomous and Environmentally Sustainable Utility Vehicles

NUVE-LAB provides research, development, and testing capabilities from passenger cars to heavy utility vehicles. It is designed to serve energy efficient and  autonomous vehicle research and development. The lab contains a platform for modelling actual environments in virtual reality. Our modern laboratory helps develop vehicles that meet the future market requirements.


In NUVE-LAB you can develop your next generation autonomous and semi-autonomous utility vehicles to withstand the demands of the future market. 

Our unique ecosystem offers the latest technical facilities and exceptional human resources. The location on the Linnanmaa campus that is one of the largest university research communities in Northern Europe creates an outstanding opportunity for vehicle suppliers to lead the development of autonomous and environmentally sustainable vehicles. 

Competitiveness with Energy-Efficient Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

Energy efficiency and low carbon footprint have become important competition factors in the field of autonomous and vehicle technologies.  Maintaining the competitiveness requires a growing focus on the related research and development activities; the present combustion engine-based solutions will soon be replaced by electricity and hybrid technologies equipped with energy reserving systems.  The competition, quickly tightening emission standards and environmental awareness of the customers will ensure the fast evolution in the field.

The long-term objective of the project is to establish a Nordic network which concentrates on education, research and cold climate product development. The NUVE-LAB investments influence directly on the developing of energy efficient autonomous and utility vehicle technologies, and the companies involved in the project can develop a cutting edge technology in our unique laboratory.

The idea of the laboratory is explained in the video below:
