Christchurch’s autonomous vehicle trial is changing up a gear with introduction of New Zealand’s first Smart Shuttle. It can carry up to 15 adults and is autonomous, electric and parts of it have been 3D printed. It has been Ohmio which is also the trial partner.
The second stage of the ongoing Autonomous Vehicle (AV) trial on private roads at Christchurch Airport will now centre on the new vehicle, which went public recently at the airport.
A small number of interested parties were invited to see the new vehicle unveiled, and members of the public were also invited to take a ride over.
The Airport plans using it across our campus in the future. In the meantime, it will continue testing and learning to understand its capabilities.
