Next year, the City of Tallinn will begin testing the limited application of a self-driving bus in public transport.
The self-driving bus is to be tested on the last mile, which in transportation refers to the movement of people from a transportation hub such as a bus stop to their final destination.
Tallinn University of Technology (TTU) and the City of Tallinn want to begin testing by introducing one self-driving bus into city traffic for a period of one year.
This summer, the first such self-driving buses were introduced in Tallinn, where twin buses transported passengers on a limited route between the Mere puiestee tram stop and Tallinn Creative Hub on the occasion of the Estonian presidency of the Council of the EU. (ERR/Business World Magazine)
