Friuli Venezia Giulia Strade operates a regional road network in Friuli-Giulia-Venezia with a total length of about 3,200 km. In addition to the planning and construction of road infrastructure, FVG Strade is also entrusted with the maintenance and monitoring of its traffic routes.

On 3 December 2021, a workshop was held in Udine by FVG Strade, Friuli InnovazioneFirma VI-grade and JOANNEUM RESEARCH.

VI-grade is a world leader in the development and construction of professional driving simulators for the automotive industry. With about 200 employees and 6 locations worldwide, VI-grade supplies driving simulators for the development of vehicle components for all well-known car manufacturers up to Formula 1.

During the workshop, new projects for future cooperation were developed. Specifically, the first pilot projects in the area of road infrastructure monitoring and the digitalisation of the road network through the creation of high-precision maps (UHD Maps) are to be implemented in 2022.

In the course of the workshop, a section of a mountain road in Ampezzo near Udine was also digitised.
