BusBot is an EasyMile EZ10 Generation 2 vehicle and embodies the technology and features needed to successfully trial automated vehicles in Coffs Harbour.
The EZ10 incorporates a range of features that address safety and security issues. It has been trialed in multiple locations around the world by manufacturer EasyMile.
Multiple layers of redundancy maximize the safety of passengers, pedestrians, other road users and the vehicle. This includes:
- Redundant coverage by sensors, with sensors provided by different suppliers mitigating risk of single sensor failure
- Fail-safe and redundant braking system, with the EZ10 fitted with several independent braking systems
