Within the scope of the project, 5 buses will serve.
Fusion Processing, which has partnered with Stagecoach, Alexander Dennis Ltd, Transport Scotland, Edinburgh Napier University and Bristol Robotics Laboratory for the CAVForth project, announced that its autonomous buses are on the roads of Scotland for the first time.
In the road test to be carried out, there will be no passengers on the buses. Autonomous buses with a capacity of 36 people on the 22.5-kilometer service route will be able to serve more than 10 thousand passengers per week.
Jim Hutchinson, CEO of Fusion Processing: "We are delighted to be leading the world's most complex and ambitious autonomous vehicle programme. CAVForth will be a great demonstration of Fusion's automated vehicle technology as well as providing a useful service to the local community. Buses at SAE Level 4 "It is equipped with CAVstar, our automated driving system that combines our own hardware and software to create working, safe, full-size buses. Road tests are an exciting milestone in the development of autonomous commercial vehicles and we look forward to welcoming passengers on our buses in a few months." said.
