Automated Bus Pilot on MSU's campus in Michigan

May 15, 2020

Adastec is partnering with Michigan State University (MSU) to roll out a full-size, electric Level 4 automated bus on MSU’s campus in East Lansing, Michigan, USA. The pilot will service a 7-mile route and will be open to the public beginning in 2021.

Designed for large-scale public transport on pre-defined public road routes, the Adastec Open Automated Bus Platform, named TEC-DRIVE, will be fully integrated with a wide range of compute, sensor, mapping and safety equipment. The open platform provides flexibility to bus manufacturers and, in turn, allows them to build the best automated bus configurations for the needs of the public transportation operators.“Adastec is proud to be part of PlanetM’s grant program initiative,” said Dr. Ali Peker, CEO of Adastec. “When the history of autonomous vehicles is charted, we will see the major role played by Michigan, its companies and its people. We believe, together, we can build a safer, more sustainable future that starts with Michigan and brings value to communities across the United States and the world.”
