Transport accounts for about 25 percent of the world’s CO2 emissions, and transport in cities is a major contributor.
Connected driverless buses were put on a six month trial in real road situations. Test sites in Sweden demonstrated how emissions can be reduced with self-driving electric buses using the cloud and the Ericsson Connected Vehicle Solution.
The development of automated bus routes and automated traffic management solutions shows that connected, electric, shared and automated transport solutions can revolutionize the transport of people and goods.
