Switzerland Trial-Testing Autonomous Buses

Published by , July 4, 2016 12:24 am

(GizMag) Switzerland is engaged in a two-year trial test of electronic autonomous buses, with a pair of driverless shuttles now ferrying passengers around the city of Sion as part of the trial. The buses have been fitted with air conditioning, a backup battery, an access ramp for the disabled and are capable of carrying 11 passengers at a time, who will ride free of charge.
Other autonomous buses being tested out across the globe include the EZ10 in California and Singapore, the Navia also in Singapore, and the IBM-powered Olli in Washington DC that can even talk to its passengers en route.
