There's no doubt that soon, driverless cars, trucks and trains would take over the roads with 90% electric. But already, driverless minibuses are already on stage to dominate passenger transportation in the eastern French city of Lyon. Two electric self-driving buses were unveiled in France just last year and a video showing one prototype in action, will blow your mind.
Super cute and portable, they can easily maneuver bends and corners. The two electric buses are fitted with high-tech equipment including laser sensors, stereo vision and GPS and they can conveniently convey can up to 5 passengers at a top speed of 20km/hr (12 mph).
French auto coy, Navya is the manufacturer and each bus goes for about $225, 000. A prototype was successfully tested in France and Switzerland.
However there are also developments of driverless and semi-autonomous luxury buses by other auto giants such as Mercedes-Benz.
