Following years of developing autonomous shuttle solutions, the FABULOS project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, has announced that it is bringing robot buses to the streets of Europe. From spring 2020, three robot bus prototypes will be evaluated in real-life conditions in five European cities. When the pilots are finalised, the cities and any third-party procurers will consider initiating a public follow-up procurement in 2021 based on the insights gained from the project. The piloting of the self-driving shuttles has already started in Helsinki, Finland. Pilots in Gjesdal (Norway) and Tallinn (Estonia) will follow in June 2020, depending on COVID-19 restrictions. During the autumn of 2020, pilots will be launched in Lamia (Greece), Helmond (the Netherlands) and again in Gjesdal. Read the whole story here.
