Volgabus company will allocate 200 million rubles for the development and testing of unmanned buses

Not long ago, we about electric modular platform , the concept of which was presented by the Russian company . The versatility of the platform is that on its basis it is possible to quickly make a small but functional vehicles or passenger bus. The platform can be used by itself — according to the developers, it can carry cargo. Apparently, the project took off: the Agency for strategic initiatives reports that the company Volgabus will provide a grant of up to 200 million rubles for the project of robotic passenger traffic.

After Volgabus will receive a grant, the company's specialists will be able to test unmanned platforms, and then begin to test in different environmental conditions. The project was called "Special markets: robotic passenger transportation". In the early stages of the company's specialists Volgabus plan to develop several prototypes of unmanned systems, and then to implement them in a modular transport platform MATRЕSHKA.

Director General Volgabus Alex Bakulin explained that the design should be universal so that it can be used on any unmanned vehicle. This, of course, need to develop certain standards. A regulatory framework that will allow you to certify and use of unmanned vehicles on public roads, I plan to introduce in 2018.

Part of the work will be funded by the Fund for the support of STI projects, the remaining funds needed for development, Volgabus will find yourself.
