New Flyer launches Autonomous Technology Program for buses
 On May 6, New Flyer announced its new Autonomous Technology Program for heavy-duty transit buses. The program will develop and deploy technology for Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Vehicles (AV), with a guiding principle focused on public safety.

How will the program support smart mobility?

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. 

Who will New Flyer work with on this program?
New Flyer will collaborate and align with key public and private organizations, including the Society of Automotive Engineers, U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Federal Transit Administration, and AV technology partners.
