Testing begins on first driverless bus


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Driverless technology is getting bigger.

The world’s first full-size self-driving electric bus completed testing operations in Singapore this week.

The automatic bus is nearly 40-feet long and can carry as many as 80 passengers.

When the battery is fully charged, the bus can drive about 15 miles at a speed of just a little more than 30 miles per hour.

The bus will undergo more testing this year, and designers are hopeful it could move to public roads if all goes well.
