The automaker Volvo and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) have agreed to conduct on-campus tests of the fully autonomous Volvo 7900 bus.
The bus is one-storied, equipped with 36 seats, but it seats 80 passengers. At the same time, he spends 80% less energy on his movement than his diesel counterparts.
For the orientation of the bus in space meets the special software with artificial intelligence. It analyzes the data collected from sensors: lidars, stereo cameras (they create a 3D image) and a navigation system that determines the location with an accuracy of one centimeter.
The campus of Nanyang Technological University was chosen for tests by chance. It is equipped with 300-kilowatt charging ports, which can provide the bus with electricity.
