The next stage of testing for NSW’s first driverless shuttle has commenced, with trials carrying passengers taking place on the streets of Sydney Olympic Park.
The Smart Shuttle, which can carry up to 15 passengers and reach a top speed of 45 kilometres per hour is being tested on roads around the precinct, ahead of the introduction of live services early in 2019.
The commencement of passenger testing is the next step in a two year trial of the state’s first highly automated shuttle, following initial trials at Newington Armory in late 2017.
The trial is being conducted by the NSW Government through the Smart Innovation Centre, in partnership with HMI Technologies, NRMA, Telstra, IAG, Sydney Olympic Park Authority, and the University of Technology Sydney.
You can find out more, including how you can be part of the trial, at the Transport for NSW website.
