The UK’s first full-sized autonomous bus is now being trialled at a Manchester bus depot, testing software and systems that will be used in a major self-driving public transportation project that will be taking place in Scotland next year.

The ground-breaking project, involving a single-deck diesel-powered vehicle, is part of a program being delivered by transportation operator Stagecoach, in partnership with bus manufacturer Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL), and technology company Fusion Processing.

The 38ft (11.5m) long ADL Enviro200 vehicle is now able to operate autonomously within Sharston depot, and the technology being used could also provide future road safety benefits for vehicles operating in manual mode. The ADL-manufactured bus has been fitted with the CAVstar system provided by Fusion Processing. This trial includes the bus being used in autonomous mode within the depot environment, to carry out movements such as parking and moving into the bus wash.
