Transdev has teamed up with autonomous vehicle manufacturer EasyMile and network technology partner Telstra to present the 2017/18 Australasian Driverless Roadtrip.
The roadtrip will feature public demonstrations of EasyMile’s EZ10 fully autonomous driverless shuttle in select capital cities and regional centres in late 2017 and early 2018.
The tour will give people across Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to experience the future of transport first-hand, and get an introduction to the benefits of self-driving shuttle technology and its many applications.
The EZ10 is a functioning example of what the future of mobility for end users looks like, combining the benefits and flexibility of the technology, with the economy of group transportation.
The public is invited to hitch a ride in the self-driving, fully autonomous shuttle when the Australasian Driverless Roadtrip visits:
In 2018, public demonstrations are planned for Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington.
