3AW Mornings road tests the driverless bus
Driverless buses are one step closer to reality.
La Trobe University researchers have been developing the bus since June, and it will be trialled on its Bundoora campus from April 2018.
Have a look at 3AW Mornings’ early road test:
Program producer Michael Hilder took a ride on the 12-seater bus.
He said it knew to stop at the zebra crossing.
