EasyMile EZ10 Autonomous Shuttle in Ipswich Qld

EasyMile’s EZ10 electric shuttle will be introduced into Ipswich.

Ipswich City Council has approved the trial of driverless shuttle buses around the water theme park lagoon at Orion Shopping Centre.

“The loop along John Nugent Way takes about five minutes, so it’s a great way to get a taste for what the future of public transport might be like,” Mr Pearce said.

“The driverless shuttles is completely autonomous so no steering wheel, no driver’s seat, no accelerator, no brake. On each corner we have sensors which detect the road (and) they detect if people are walking in front of the vehicle.”
