Mercedes’ Autonomous Future Bus Just Drove Through Amsterdam
Autonomy isn’t just for cars; Mercedes-Benz has created a self-driving city bus, too.
Mercedes-Benz revealed its latest creation on Monday morning. Called the Future Bus, it’s the first city bus that can drive autonomously.
Mercedes did more than just unveil the futuristic vehicle. It also sent it on a 12-mile route through the streets of Amsterdam.
The Future Bus operates with Mercedes’ CityPilot autonomous driving system, enabling the bus to autonomously switch lanes, arrive at bus stops, pass through tunnels, interact with traffic signals, and brake for pedestrians and obstructions.
