Mercedes-Benz autonomous bus

18.07.2016 | Carscoops | www.carscoops.com

Equipped with autonomous technology adapted for city use, the Mercedes-Benz Future Bus has been put to the test on the streets of Amsterdam.

Demonstrated on a section of the longest bus rapid transit (BRT) line in Europe, the vehicle drove itself on a 20-km (12-mile) route at speeds of up to 70 km/h (43.5 mph), during which it stopped at bus stops, opened and closed the doors, communicated with traffic lights and successfully avoided all obstacles nearby, from pedestrians to cars.

Autonomous bus from Mercede-Benz

Daimler, which became the world's first manufacturer to put a city bus through a real-life traffic situation, had a driver on board to monitor the CityPilot system, which can be activated by pressing a button and disengaged by a slight steer or touch of the accelerator or brake pedal.

The system uses long- and short-range radar, satellite-controlled GPS navigation, large cameras, and sensors that mostly came from the Future Truck 2025 Concept. Moreover, it can also communicate via Wi-Fi with the route infrastructure to receive info on traffic light status, taking advantage this way of the green wave.
