Driverless bus service

Driverless  minibus with a capacity of 15 passengers  are now operating a 10-minute route with five stops in the city centre at an average speed of 6mph.

The 4-metre long bus costing around £170,000 is equipped with a range of detectors that allow them to know exactly where they are and to detect everything happening around them and to manage it intelligently to avoid collisions.

They are not capable of manoeuvring around other traffic and the routes are near a tramway where other vehicles are not allowed.

Neither the current driverless technology nor the legislation allow this type of vehicle to operate in the midst of cars or other traffic.
