Danish students could be offered lifts on self-driving buses this year
The company is the first and so far, only applicant for a license to operate the self-driving vehicles in the Scandinavian country. The small, white driverless buses have already been spotted during test runs at DTU’s campus in Lyngby, a district in the northern part of Greater Copenhagen, the area also covered by the Autonomous Mobility application. DTU’s existing knowledge of automated systems makes it the ideal location for Denmark’s first trial of self-driving buses, university director Claus Nielsen said. The project has received financial support from the EU and also includes a research element, the university chief confirmed. Two buses with maximum speeds of 15-18 kilometres per hour will provide the trial service, which could begin later this year.
