|In March 2019, during the Tech.AD conference in Berlin, Nobina Technologies’ solution for autonomous shuttles was voted First Place in the Most Advanced RealLife Testing and Simulation Techniques in the Autonomous Driving awards category.
Nobina’s real-world use case about self-driving shuttles in the Swedish city of Barkarbystaden (near Stockholm) offers a glimpse into the future of automated urban mobility.
The shuttles are electric, run at a maximum speed of 15 km/h, and carry 11 passengers.
The entire route, which has four stops, takes roughly 20 min. During the first few years, a bus host will be onboard but will not steer the bus.
