Volkswagen is aiming to reduce the stress of school mornings with its high-tech SEDRIC School Bus. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the SEDRIC School Bus is a fully autonomous vehicle that picks up children through a ride-hailing service. Parents looking to rush their children out of the home just need to call up the bus and wait as it travels door-to-door, picking up other kids and transporting them to school.

The SEDRIC School Bus currently seats four, and while this may not seem ideal for transporting hundreds of students, the bus is being shown more as a concept. The SEDRIC School Bus illustrates the capability of autonomous driving technology and how it can be used in practical situations. The concept bus currently features a large OLED entertainment screen and two aluminum boxes, which function as double seats and storage.
