Driverless shuttle aimed at campuses, inner cities

Lucas Mearian | Jan. 7, 2014
A driverless shuttle vehicle unveiled at CES can carry up to 10 people, learning any new route with a single trip and responding to rider stops when requested.

Leferve said his company has also developed a mobile app that allows pedestrians to call the vehicle to a pre-designated stop. Induct is also working on a website to allow commuters to call for the vehicle at a designated place and time along its preset route.

The Navia currently travels at 15 miles per hour (mph), but it was been tested at up to 25 miles per hour and Leferve hopes to test the technology on a faster moving vehicle, perhaps even fast enough to travel on secondary roadways.
