Mercedes Autonomous Bus improves efficiency, as its smooth, predictive driving style saves wear and tear while lowering fuel consumption and emissions. With Mercedes Autonomous Bus smooth and even rate of travel it also improves the comfort of its passengers.
The Mercedes-Benz Future Bus with CityPilot is making its first public journey on part of Europe's longest BRT route (BRT = Bus Rapid Transit) in the Netherlands. This links Amsterdam's Schiphol airport with the town of Haarlem. This almost 20 km long route is a real challenge for the Mercedes-Benz Future Bus / Mercedes Autonomous Bus, as it has numerous bends and passes through tunnels and across junctions with traffic lights.
The Mercedes-Benz Future Bus with CityPilot is well able to meet this challenge: Mercedes Autonomous Bus has a top speed of 70 km/h on the open road, is able to recognize obstacles and pedestrians on the road, comes to a precise halt at bus stops, opens and closes its doors, moves off automatically and communicates with traffic light systems. Mercedes Autonomous Bus.
The technology of the CityPilot in the Mercedes-Benz Future Bus is based on that of the autonomously driving Mercedes-Benz Actros truck with Highway Pilot presented two years ago. Mercedes Autonomous Bus has however undergone substantial further development specifically for use in a city bus, with numerous added functions. The Mercedes Autonomous Bus CityPilot is able to recognize traffic lights, communicate with them and safely negotiate junctions controlled by them. It can also recognize obstacles, especially pedestrians on the road, and brake autonomously. Mercedes Autonomous Bus approaches bus stops automatically, where it opens and closes its doors. And not least, it is able to drive through tunnels.
Just under a dozen cameras on the Mercedes Autonomous Bus scan the road and surroundings, while long and short-range radar systems constantly monitor the route ahead. There is also a GPS system. Thanks to data fusion, all the data received create an extremely precise picture and allow the bus to be positioned to within centimetres. This already works in practice, as demonstrated by the world premiere of the Mercedes Bus CityPilot on an exacting route covering almost 20 km, with a number of tight bends, tunnels, numerous bus stops and involving high speeds for a city bus.
This Mercedes semi-automated city bus improves safety, as it relieves its driver's workload and nothing remains hidden from its cameras and radar systems. Mercedes Autonomous Bus improves efficiency, as its smooth, predictive driving style saves wear and tear while lowering fuel consumption and emissions. With its smooth and even rate of travel it also improves the comfort of its passengers.
However, the Mercedes-Benz Future Bus is more radical than its predecessor, and intentionally breaks with conventions and standard design and spatial concepts for city buses. Mercedes Autonomous Bus was created from a blank sheet of paper. The result: the Mercedes Autonomous Bus exterior and Mercedes Autonomous Bus interior design is an extraordinary symbiosis of form and function.
The front section impresses with its clear layout. Below the windscreen the Mercedes star as a trademark is the centrepiece. Two white light bars extend from it to each side. In view of their shape, the designers refer to these as "paddles". Their illumination in white (manual) and blue (semi-automated) indicates the current driving status of the bus.
At the top the Mercedes Autonomous Bus windscreen transitions into a compact destination indicator. A panel covers the area above the driver. This design touch symbolises the fact that the Mercedes Autonomous Bus driver on board this semi-automated city bus only plays a diminished role behind the wheel. The Mercedes Autonomous Bus technology platform dispenses with conventional exterior mirrors in favour of Mercedes Autonomous Bus camera systems, so-called mirrorcams.
In its basic form the low side wall takes its lead from the current Citaro. This is made obvious by the dynamically styled wheel arches, for example. The side walls have a silver paint finish, as has the roof panelling. This covers the roof-mounted equipment and ensures an integrated appearance. The cladding panels are intentionally asymmetrical in design.
