Just the ticket.
A driverless bus operating on Curtin’s main campus in Perth is determining public confidence in driverless technology, and providing an opportunity for further research in navigation satellite systems, road safety and ethical issues.
Built by Navya, the electric bus seats 11 passengers and travels up to 45km per hour on a pre-determined route, using computer programming and remote sensors, cameras and GPS navigation, with exact rules as to when to start, stop and negotiate temporary obstacles.
Driverless technology could lead to safer and more sustainable transport, provide mobility options for people unable to drive, and reduce traffic congestion and noise pollution.
