CARS WITHOUT DRIVERS BEGAN TO CHOOSE IN SWEDEN

16

The first public buses without drivers began to run in northern Stockholm. They appeared on the roads of the business district on Wednesday, January 24, as part of the Nobina project.

Two buses now run between Kista and Victoria Tower on a pre-recorded 15-kilometer route at a speed of 20 km / h. GPS and special sensors ensure that the bus does not deviate from the route.

The bus does not have a steering wheel, but it can be manually controlled. In the cabin, there is a person in the event of an emergency, as required by applicable Swedish law.

Buses can carry 12 passengers, and travel is free of charge.
