Driverless shuttle system on campus

Driverless shuttle system on campus -

Like many automakers and technology companies are testing the self-driving cars, Auro Robotics is moving towards a smaller scale by testing Shuttle driverless system in small environments and content such as schools or parks. The company chose to focus on these areas as they are controlled by private companies and therefore not subject to heavy government regulation faced by other companies developing driverless cars. Therefore, the time required to actually deploy driverless shuttle system should be faster.

One of the challenges in building the driverless shuttle system is how to do it intelligently and safely navigate through heavy traffic of pedestrians is currently being tested to make it perfect. Therefore, the team came up with a three-dimensional map of the environment that the shuttles are deployed so that the vehicle may have a better judgment on the situation and act according to the best way that it can possibly do. Accordingly, each shuttle will be other three-dimensional map based on which place it is deployed.

There are currently two models shuttle according to the location they are deployed. A type of shuttle is scheduled to be able to follow a route closed loop with preset stops while another type is programmed to be able to called at the request of users pick up and drop to the location they pre-defined beforehand.

Santa Clara University is the first campus shuttle buses will be deployed. It seems that in the future students will prefer to take the shuttle to go to their classes or wherever they want to go into the campus.
