Unmanned shuttle will transport passengers from Incheon Airport to Seoul in South Korea

Incheon AirportUnmanned shuttle will transport passengers from Incheon Airport to the capital Seoul in South Korea. On November 9, were successfully completed the tests, reported the local authorities.

At first, the unmanned shuttle will drive independently only a small segment of 2.2 kilometers at a speed of 30 km/h, but later it is planned to make its movement completely autonomous. At the moment, there are problems with markings on the route, which makes it difficult for the bus to move without a driver. In addition, other cars often violate the rules of the road and create dangerous situations. However, the developers are pleased with the first successes that have shown that the work of an unmanned bus is possible.

The bus was created by several South Korean companies – in particular, KT Corp and Unmanned Solution. In the future, it is planned to start mass production.

Incheon International Airport is the largest airport in South Korea, the primary airport serving the Seoul Capital Area, and one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. Since 2005, it has been rated the best airport worldwide by Airports Council International every year. It is also rated as the world’s cleanest airport and the world’s best international transit airport by Skytrax
