Published on : Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County METRO, known as Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County is looking for the driverless cars and buses for the public transportation which was discussed in the Texas Mobility Summit.

 

 

KPRC Channel 2’s Leigh Frillici had a chance to take a ride in the driverless vehicle. She described it as surreal. KPRC 2 Meteorologist Eric Braate completes Ironman World Championship. Janet Yellen expects healthy inflation to return.

 

 

The driverless car, developed in part by Texas A&M and top transportation leaders across the state, gathered at TranStar to take the first spin.

 

 

A&M is also working on platooning technology for trucks, which means a driver is in the first truck and the trucks behind it are driverless.

 

 

 

The driverless technology has already been shown to prove fuel efficiency, and METRO is now looking at the technology for buses.

 

 

The technology holds exciting possibilities for public transportation in Houston.
