Bryan, US is piloting AVs
The university town of Bryan, Texas launched a pilot driverless shuttle route in October 2018. The tests will be monitored by Texas A&M’s Engineering Experiment Station together with the support of the same university’s Transportation Institute, who will help evaluate feedback from future shuttle riders. An initial deployment of two vehicles running on scheduled service along a 0.8 mile downtown loop may be expanded as the project continues. Additional research will focus on technical aspects of vehicle deployment as well as exploring future mobility options for the city’s public transit system. The project is backed by the Governor’s University Research Initiative and the City of Bryan.
