Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and Volvo Buses will begin testing autonomous electric passenger buses in Singapore in 2019. For Volvo, this will be its first autonomous application in public transportation anywhere in the world. Volvo has already demonstrated its autonomous technology in mining, quarry and refuse collection operations.

The 12-meter Volvo 7900 Electric bus is already in service around the world. The 40-seat buses to be deployed in Singapore will be equipped with autonomous driving technologies including GPS and LIDAR systems for charting, positioning and detecting obstacles around the vehicle, and an integrated navigation system that includes automated steering, gear changing, and speed throttling technologies.

The buses will be tested from early 2019 at the Centre of Excellence for Testing and Research of Autonomous vehicles at NTU (CETRAN). The autonomous vehicle test circuit, which is modeled after real road conditions in Singapore, provides a safe and controlled environment in which to test autonomous vehicles.
