Singapore Technologies to test self-driving buses in the city of Ashdod E-mail

Self-driving buses developed by Singapore Technologies (ST) Engineering will soon be tested in the port city of Ashdod in Israel.

The company will begin developing and testing autonomous buses next year under an agreement signed on 30 October at the sixth annual Smart Mobility Summit in Tel Aviv. It will also set up a new research and development centre in Israel to support the development of autonomous buses, and will collaborate with Ashdod, Israel’s sixth-largest city, on other transportation matters, such as a fleet management system for public buses and an intelligent transport system for traffic management.

“Using big data analytics and machine learning, these solutions will improve the service quality of [the city’s] transport systems and enhance commuter experience through real-time traffic and commuter sensing, supervisory and control capabilities, as well as early warning of potential service disruptions,” said a spokesperson for ST Engineering.
