Our team and Iseauto headed to Finland on 27th of November, where TalTech University organized a pop-up university in Aalto University for celebrating our 100 birthday. The aim was to introduce TalTech University and it’s opportunities for neighbor countries, which one big part is our Iseauto. Many students and entrepreneurs got to meet our self-driving Iseauto.
20. September we had our first official autonomous driving which was great success!
Demo drive took place in the university campus by bringing two main presenters in the TalTech anniversary Vision Conference.
Our first official passengers were TalTech rector Jaak Aaviksoo and Vice-President of the European Investment Bank, former Finnish prime minister, Alexander Stubb. It was first ever autonomous driving experience for good Estonian friend Alexander Stubb and second ride for our rector, who had a test ride a day before.
They made one stop during their ride, where the rector introduced our new amphitheater, which was opened last week, then the ride continued by bringing the passengers to the university to open the TalTech Digital vision conference.
Thanks to our excellent team and we will enter now into new stage of development.
