Volvo's autonomous electric bus is intended to safely navigate the streets of Singapore with security and precision. Still in its testing stages, the driverless vehicle is surely an advancement within the transit category, as well as the sustainability sector. The innovation relies on artificial intelligence to operate. In addition, the vehicle is complete with light- and range-detecting sensors, as well as "cybersecurity measures to ensure its safety on public streets." The development is really no surprise as more auto manufacturers are attempting to revolutionize transportation. In comparison with the traditional precursor, Volvo's concept boasts zero-emissions and "uses 80 percent less energy than a diesel bus of the equivalent size."
Volvo worked on its autonomous electric bus with Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
