New Flyer Launches Autonomous Technology Program for Buses

This program includes the development and deployment of technology for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and automated vehicles (AVs), with a guiding principle focused on public safety.

To ensure safe interaction among transit operators, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and interaction of buses, New Flyer will leverage the Internet of Things (an extension of internet connectivity to physical devices and everyday objects) to build connectivity in sharing public roadways. Secondary benefits of New Flyer’s program include operational efficiency, productivity and energy reduction.
