You won't find a steering wheel or a driver on this autonomous shuttle

Small, autonomous shuttles have been transporting passengers around Sion, Switzerland for free in an attempt to integrate autonomous vehicles into cities.

This shuttle has no wheel and no driver

That’s because it’s completely autonomous

Cameras and sensors on the vehicle help detect obstacles

and an onboard attendant can press an emergency button to stop the shuttle

It’s operated by Postbus and can fit up to 11 passengers

The vehicles were demonstrated to attendees at Cebit in Hanover

Two shuttles are already operating on the streets of Sion in Switzerland

Since 2016, they’ve transported more than 16,000 people in Sion for free!

Testing in Sion is set to run until October 2017

The project will help with integrating autonomous vehicles into cities
