No timetables. No fixed stops. No waiting ages in the rain. EU-funded researchers are running world-first trials of a public transport concept involving autonomous electric buses that may soon collect users on demand. Such fleets could be a less costly, greener option for areas where conventional services might not be viable.

No more traffic jams. Safer roads. Less pollution. These are just some of the benefits promised as automated and connected vehicles take to the streets - but only if they can effectively communicate and cooperate. An EU-funded project is developing key network infrastructure technology to lead this revolution in transport automation.
