Palkovics said that the realization of the second phase is still ongoing, while the plans of the third phase are being finalized.
According to the minister, minor modifications have been realized in line with the requirements of clients and feedback from researchers.
"The special test environment being constructed in Hungary is the most modern facility of its kind in the world for the testing of autonomous vehicles," he noted.
