A fleet of autonomous buses to transport people around a city in a “smart” mode of transportation could be on the horizon in 2021, as a collaboration between the California Public Utilities Commission and the private sector seeks to launch a project to make buses that would drive themselves and operate on the highway.
The initiative was announced in January, and it’s designed to make autonomous vehicles as ubiquitous as possible by providing an infrastructure for transportation.
The goal is to bring the technology to market by 2020.
While the concept sounds like it could work in a future where self-driving vehicles are commonplace, it’s important to remember that the technology itself will be very different from what we’re used to today.
A few years ago, researchers from Google and Microsoft showed that they could create self-powered, autonomous cars, and the technology was very impressive.
But those cars were built on the same technology as the ones we now use to drive cars, which is called “artificial intelligence.”
The key difference is that a human driver is involved in driving the car.
The new effort, called Smart Bus Rapid Transit, or SMART, will use a system of sensors, cameras, sensors and software that will allow buses to drive themselves.
SMART is designed to operate on a highway in a way that’s safe for people and pedestrians.
It will use sensors that capture information from sensors in the vehicle and relay that information to computers that will operate the bus.
The bus will use artificial intelligence to steer itself, with the goal of allowing the bus to travel faster, safer and less congested than the average human driver.
The sensors that will control the bus will also use the same system, but will have to be designed for autonomous vehicles.
The buses, which will cost about $5 million to build, will be able to operate up to 200 miles per hour, with speeds that will be comparable to those of a modern, semi-trailer bus.
It’s also hoped that the bus technology will be widely adopted in the next few years, and eventually will allow autonomous vehicles to be used in many other parts of the world.
In the meantime, it sounds like the concept is very ambitious.
“The bus technology has been in the works for a long time,” Rob Kiehl, vice president of the Transportation Research Board’s Intelligent Transportation Lab, said in a statement.
“It’s a critical step in the process to ensure that autonomous vehicles can be a part of the transportation mix, and this is a critical component of that.”
