We are thrilled to announce that ADASTEC Corp., 8.3-meter-long electric bus is 100% electrically powered and has been declared road-worthy for highways and streets in Europe and the USA, marking a major milestone in autonomous driving technology.
As part of our commitment to providing the most advanced Level-4 automation platform for full-size commercial vehicles currently available, ADASTEC's flowride.ai automation platform is designed for large-scale public transport along pre-defined routes on public roads. The platform enables OEMs to build the best automated bus configurations to meet the needs of operators.
To ensure the safety and success of our autonomous driving platform, we have utilized different sensor technologies on the bus, including LiDAR, RADAR, RGB, and thermal cameras. However, we needed a reliable and high-performance perception sensor to accurately detect and recognize traffic conditions and objects such as obstacles, signs, and traffic signals.
To achieve this, we turned to LUCID's 5.4 MP Triton cameras featuring the Sony IMX490 (BSI) back-illuminated CMOS sensor. With their large 5.4-megapixel resolution running at 23.1 fps, these cameras enable a wide-angle field of view and high-precision recognition in both daytime and nighttime for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving.
As the first company to successfully develop a Level-4 full-size self-driving electric bus, we are excited to lead the way in autonomous driving technology. This bus can carry over 52 passengers and is powered by 220 kWh batteries, making it highly efficient on the road and supporting the move towards cleaner energy.
