Hungary A European Hub For Development Of Autonomous Vehicle Systems
Hungary is a European hub for the development of autonomous vehicle systems, the innovation and technology minister said after an informal meeting of European transportation ministers in Graz.

Hungary is a leader in the research and development of technologies that support the future of selfdriving cars, László Palkovics told MTI.

This was why, he said, the government has decided to build a “globally unique” test environment which includes a self-driving vehicle test track in Zalaegerszeg, in western Hungary.

Hungary is also collaborating with Austria and Slovenia in the development of selfdriving vehicles, the minister said, adding that the countries wanted to see how such a car behaves when it crosses borders.

Palkovics said Hungary is also a leader in the use of 4G and 5G networks.
