Automatic bus

In 2003, the pilot bus with automatic control opens in the Dutch city of Eindhoven. The bus, 24 meters long, has been designed by the University of Technology of this city. Different sensors inside the bus will record the magnetic field and with this information will measure the distance between the magnet and each sensor.

The bus will follow a preset narrow road and take the curves without giving order. In the stations it will also automatically remain. Therefore, the driver will only have to control the speed and monitor the trip. You will have an electric motor and use special batteries. With no electricity or rail connection required, the bus production costs will be relatively low.
