Driverless Buses.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-driving_car

Do the Self driving or robot or autonomous cars
technology will also be applied to the Heavy vehicles categories viz Buses, Trucks, Tempos etc?

Thanks & Regards,

The question is ... do the double-decker buses in London have a driver on the top?

The Double Decker buses in London certainly are
not driverless. I had been to UK.

Interesting point is, will those buses in near future
run without a driver similar to self driving cars ?

We have to consider from all aspects especially the most important is the security of the passengers traveling in Buses.

What are your views & opinions on this ?

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks Dan.

Ideally this thread should be in Electronics as
Self driving Technology involves sensors.

London's DLR (Docklands Light Railway) trains are already remote-controlled by computer, so they could be autonomous.

I'd put it in computer science, sensors on their own do very little, it's the software that makes all the magic happen.

I agree David.

Computer Science could be the most appropriate forum for discussing Driverless automobiles.

I also feel Automobiles forum could be another appropriate forum as we are discussing Driverless Buses.
