Australia’s regional trial of an automated passenger vehicle service features Papercast’s real-time passenger information solution to provide customers information at major bus stops on the route. Passengers of the BusBot Automated Vehicle Service will receive live, accurate travel information at bus with Papercast's solar powered e-paper displays.
The automated passenger vehicle trial is an NSW Government initiative, led in partnership between Transport for NSW, local bus operator Busways, Coffs Harbour City Council, and vehicle manufacturer EasyMile. The trial aims to revolutionize the way passenger transport services are designed and delivered in rural and regional communities. This is a three-phase trial in which the technology is tested in more complex environments as the trial progresses.
