Sensible 4 oy and MOOVE GmbH announced and launched an autonomous shuttle bus at Slush, a start-up event in Helsinki. With it, both companies aim to bring a new serial-produced autonomous solution to the European market. The commercial vehicle is expected to take advantage of SAE Level 4 autonomy and begin operations in 2023.
Sensible 4 will automate the PeopleMover, a customizable vehicle that can carry up to 19 passengers. Trials with the automated PeopleMover will take place in February 2022 in Aachen, Germany. The modified vehicle will utilize Sensible 4’s own autonomous software, which has been developed for shuttle busses and last-mile operations. MOOVE will supply its Mover platform, which will focus on ensuring safety for the occupants of the bus and other road users.
