Mercedes’ Future Bus on Autopilot in Amsterdam [Video]

German automotive manufacturer Mercedes is testing self-driving vehicles of many types to keep up with the industry competition. Based on the bus model “Citaro”, they have now build a 39.4 feet long bus for autonomous driving. There is still a driver in the front who could engage in steering the vehicle but in normal operation this future bus is set to autopilot its way through the city with a top speed of 43.5 miles per hour.

The autopilot is marketed under the name CityPilot, or just CP in short, and is designed to be ready for a future of automated transportation in cities and maybe even rural or suburban areas. Certainly a flashy fresh design!
