A driverless shuttle bus service will begin in Singapore by the end of the first quarter of 2017.

This shuttle bus is developed by French company Navya. It is called the Arma.

The autonomous bus will hold up to 15 passengers and will be running between the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the CleanTech eco-business park. This distance is roughly 1.5 kilometers.

Navya says that the bus uses its Lidar sensors and cameras to detect obstacles in its path. It also communicates its GPS location to the base station. It runs on electricity, with its batteries lasting a half a day.
