Bus Bot Excursion

Today we went on a Bus Bot excursion to Marian Grove. The Bus Bot is an Autonomous vehicle, meaning it has no driver at all! It is on trial at the moment, so there is a concierge on board to ensure all is well. When we arrived we were presented with the Bus Bot itself. It is a small and compact vehicle and very Eco-friendly for it runs on batteries. The vehicle uses many sensors to track its location and maneuver through the streets. The most common one is the Lidar sensor.

The reason the Staff from the Bus Bot in the photo has a yellow controller around his neck is so that he can control the vehicle at any time, for instance if there was a car in the way he could drive past it.
