RUSSIAN AUTONOMOUS SHUTTLE BUS MAY BE READY FOR TESTING IN 2017
NAMI, a Russian government-funded automotive research organisation, has teamed up with Yandex - the company operating Russia’s largest search engine – and with Russian truck maker Kamaz and its partner Daimler to build a driverless shuttle bus.
The bus has already been displayed at the Moscow International Automobile Salon and tests on closed routes are planned for the next year. The electric shuttle bus has 12 seats and can travel around 200 km before it needs recharging. Passengers will also have the possibility to select their destinations by using a smartphone app that connects to Yandex’s cloud.
