Self-driving buses take to roads alongside commuter traffic in Helsinki

Finland has become a hotbed of automated technology development and testing because, unlike most of the rest of the world, Finnish law does not require vehicles on public roads to have a driver.


The buses have a maximum speed of 40km/h but will travel at an average speed of 10km/h, making them unusually slow-moving vehicles during non-gridlocked times.

    „The Easymile EZ-10 electric mini-buses, capable of carrying up to 12 people, will roam the open roads of Helsinki’s southernly Hernesaari district in a month-long trial, negotiating traffic for the first time.“
