Five European cities will test autonomous on-demand buses

In the course of the spring and summer of 2020, five European cities will be testing autonomous on-demand buses within real life conditions.

The demonstration projects aim to explore how autonomous on-demand buses can be integrated into real world conditions and how driverless vehicles can operate within existing public transport systems. The demonstrations will help to evaluate the functionality, interoperability and security of autonomous fleets.
