A public trial of driverless buses is reportedly set to take place in Singapore. 

The buses can be booked with an app and will be part of a roll out of autonomous vehicles across the city-state.

According to Beloit Bulletin Singapore has become a testbed for self-driving vehicles, developing home-grown technology and inviting foreign companies to trial their own.

ST Engineering, the company behind the trail, told the Beloit Bulletin that four driverless mini-buses are to follow a 5.7 kilometer route on the resort island of Sentosa from the 30th of September till 15th of November.

Visitors will be able to book the driverless shuttles on their phones through an app.

 

While Singapore continues to work towards trialling self-driving vehicles, why not have a listen of SMART Highway’s Talking Transport podcast that looks towards the 2019 ITS World Congress.
