An autonomous shuttle bus developed by a research team led by a Waterloo Engineering professor is now being showcased at the University of Waterloo.
The demonstration of the WATonoBus is the first of its kind at a Canadian academic institution and marks a significant milestone in a multi-year initiative to demonstrate and integrate autonomous transportation onto the campus.
“Today’s demonstration represents over four years of work with support and collaboration with government and industry partners,” said Amir Khajepour, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering who leads the project. “This is an exciting step forward in autonomous, driverless public transportation.”
