A self-driving passenger shuttle will be demonstrated at a major event in Glasgow this week showcasing connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV).
The NAVYA Autonom shuttle is designed for the first and last mile and is autonomous, driverless and electric.
It will be demonstrated at CAV Scotland, organised by Transport Network on behalf of Transport Scotland, which takes place at the Scottish Events Campus (SEC), Glasgow on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 November.
The event will give attendees an insight into recent developments in CAV from around the world as well as an understanding of Transport Scotland’s priorities and what this will mean for the country’s road network
The shuttle takes up to 15 people and its makers say it is ideally suited to private sites such as airports, resorts, hospitals and theme parks. With no driver, steering wheel or pedals, it uses merged data from Lidar sensors, cameras and advanced levels of navigation technology, and interpreted by deep learning programs.
Navya says its Autonom shuttle fleets allow operators to improve productivity on private sites and ease road congestion in urban centres.
More than 130 of the shuttles have been sold Worldwide and operate in more than 20 countries including the USA, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Australia and the UAE.
