Backed by the UK’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, the autonomous bus has begun live testing on Scotland's roads, in preparation for the launch of the CAVForth pilot service in late Summer 2022.
The CAVForth project will see Stagecoach operate four full-sized autonomous single-decker buses between Fife and Edinburgh in 2022.
This trial evaluates potential benefits of autonomy in a real-world scenario, and works to improve the safety of buses with state-of-the-art technology.
Passengers will be able to experience public autonomous driving services in the UK by 2021, after three driverless mobility projects receive funding.
Stagecoach partners with Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) and Fusion Processing to trial an autonomous single deck bus which will improve safety and efficiency.
