Scotland sees first demonstration of europe’s first full-sized autonomous bus

In partnership with Stagecoach Group plcFusion Processing Ltd and Transport Scotland, we’re delighted to show the first glimpse of the new special livery for the autonomous buses launching in Scotland next year. The CAVForth trial will see full-sized autonomous buses running on UK roads for the first time.

The new service will be made up of four Alexander Dennis Enviro200 single deck buses running a 14-mile route crossing the iconic Forth Road Bridge. They are currently being fitted out with the groundbreaking sensor and control technology developed and supplied by project lead, Fusion Processing, that allows them to become computer-driven. The vehicles are also being put through their paces with an array of virtual and track testing to ensure all systems are functioning as expected before on-road testing begins later this year.

Paul Davies, ADL President & Managing Director, said: “As the UK bus industry’s innovation leader, we are constantly exploring new ways to further increase efficiency and safety. The trial of the UK’s first full-sized autonomous bus service gives us an outstanding opportunity to gain real-world experience. We are also working closely with our colleagues across NFI Group Inc. (TSX: NFI, OTC: NFYEF) who are developing similar, promising projects.”
