Electric buses can accommodate up to 12 people.
Two unmanned buses with electric motors launched in the French capital as an experiment. If successful, the city authorities are ready to further develop such vehicles.
Both buses go along the short route between Gare de Lyon and station Austerlitz in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. They move exclusively through a dedicated line, which does not go other vehicles.
Each of the buses can accommodate up to 12 people. It is equipped with laser range finders and numerous cameras mounted around the perimeter to prevent collisions with people and cars.
Buses there is not only the driver, but also a pronounced front or back. Arriving to the destination, he can, turning immediately to go back, like the cable car.
In the future, city officials hope to replace similar buses, commuter trains connecting the small town near Paris with the metropolis. The results of the experiment will fail in three months.
