Automated remotely operated bus technology

ABOUT ROBUSTA

ROBUSTA develops novel approaches to the transportation automatisation. The project will test and study technologies that enable to remove the human operator from the bus and to put him in the control room responsible of multiple buses. Key objective is to create a remote drive system that allows the use of semi-autonomous buses, and later other autonomous vehicles in urban traffic conditions.

Specific research and development themes include software platform for remote control of robot buses, 5G network as an enabler technology, real-time sensor data, AI assisted human-machine communication, development of remote control room, in addition to exploring how autonomous vehicles could be fitted to existing mobility ecosystem, what the future business potentials are and assessing the user experience of both passengers and remote operators.

Specific attention will be put on the development of remote operation systems and interfaces that are easy and intuitive for humans to operate, and yet reliable and robust enough to provide the necessary functionality and safety.

From Science Fiction to Reality

Autonomous vehicles have been a part of science fiction and pop culture for decades, but now they are finally becoming a reality – And you’re invited for the ride. Practically every major car manufacturer, and many new rivals, have announced that they will get autonomous cars to the consumer market within the next three to…

Press Release May 8th, 2017

ROBUSTA – etäohjatut automaattibussit osana älykästä liikennettä Autonomiset liikennevälineet tekevät tuloaan, mutta tarvitsevat vielä ihmisten apua pärjätäkseen liikenteessä. Ajoneuvon tielle pysäköity polkupyörä tai tuulen riepottelema muovikassi voivat vielä toistaiseksi osoittautua ylitsepääsemättömäksi esteiksi autonomisten ajoneuvojen itse ratkaistaviksi. Siksi ihmisten apua tarvitaan. ROBUSTA -hankkeen keskeisenä tavoitteena on mahdollistaa autonomisten ajoneuvojen nopeampi käyttöönotto osana älykkäitä liikennejärjestelmiä. Tulevaisuudessa kuskittomat…
