The first driverless buses are being launched in Tampere, Finland. They will start running by the end of this year.
Buses will carry passengers from the southeastern section of the city tram line to the Lintuhütti area. The route will stretch for one kilometer.
For the first six months, there will be inspectors on the buses. In the event of an emergency, they will take control. Later, when the drones have passed all the tests, specialists will monitor them remotely. If the tests are successful, such buses will be launched on several more routes in the city.
