First zero emissions autonomous Irizar bus on the road in Malaga
Irizar’s autonomous electric bus is being trialled by operator Avanza in Malaga in a real city traffic situation.
This first autonomous bus is the result of the AutoMOST Project financed by CDTI through the CIEN programme. Avanza participated as an operator alongside 11 partners, which included the Irizar Group through Irizar e-mobility and Datik, the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Insia, CEIT-IK4 and the University of Vigo.
The bus uses a high-precision positioning and guidance system and is connected to a control centre from which specific instructions can be sent to each unit and the buses can be monitored and their itineraries accessed in real-time.
