Orlando debuts self-driving shuttle that will whisk passengers around downtown


Orlando, Florida has debuted an autonomous electric shuttle that is capable of taking passengers around downtown. The shuttle, called “Beep,” comes equipped with sensors and cameras that allow the vehicle to detect potential hazards, such as people and objects, and adjust its speed or route accordingly. The shuttle’s maximum speed is 25 mph and it can carry up to 10 passengers.


The self-driving shuttle is part of a project run by the City of Orlando and Beep, the company providing the shuttle, to study the effectiveness of autonomous vehicles in a real-world setting. The shuttle is currently limited to a loop of downtown Orlando, but officials hope to eventually expand the route with the hopes to make it easier for residents to access local attractions, restaurants, and other amenities.
