Watonobus crossing the street


The University of Waterloo's Ring Road is a 2.7km curvy road with many intersections that represents an urban driving environment with pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles. WATonoBus is a project to make autonomous vehicles safe and reliable for urban driving in any weather condition. 

Three fully equipped WATonoBus with Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) connectivity are used in a cross-disciplinary research for enabling Level 4-5 automated driving.

All sensors data from WATonoBus are available on the download page to anyone working on autonomous driving.
