Mercedes' autonomous Future Bus just drove through Amsterdam
The bus uses Mercedes' latest autonomous driving system called CityPilot. Like HighwayPilot, which allows the company's semi trucks to drive more safely and efficiently down freeways, CityPilot enables buses to drive partially autonomously in specially marked bus lanes up to 43 mph. All of this is achieved with a human driver onboard to monitor for safety. Future Bus can do more than just drive in special lanes. It can also arrive at bus stops, pass through tunnels, communicate with traffic signals, and brake for obstacles and pedestrians.
