Life as a University of California at Berkeley bus driver just got much easier; researchers have tested a self-steering bus that actually works.
Developed by California Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways, the self-steering bus is guided along by magnetic strips that are embedded in the road. Bus drivers can take control of the bus at any time, however, and are still responsible for acceleration and braking.
In testing, the self-steering bus traveled down a straight line before pulling over at a bus stop one centimeter from the curb. Take that, crazy bus drivers!
