#Mercedes-Benz Future Bus


Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler isn’t just preparing for a future of self-driving cars. Because the German manufacturer produces everything from passenger vehicles to commercial trucks, it’s spreading automation across its offerings, which now extends to city buses.

After demonstrating Highway Pilot in Germany two years ago on an autonomous Actros truck and self-driving on a Daimler-built Freightliner semi here in the U.S. in 2015, Mercedes-Benz is testing its Future Bus with CityPilot on a 12.5-mile route through Amsterdam. The Future Bus is running along Europe’s longest bus rapid transit lane between Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport and the town of Haarlem and operates autonomously at speeds up to around 40 mph.
