New Flyer

In an exclusive partnership with New Flyer of America Inc., a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., the largest bus manufacturer in North America, we are advancing autonomous bus technology by developing and deploying advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) in heavy-duty transit bus applications.

The partnership between New Flyer and Robotic Research will result in an Xcelsior CHARGE™ battery-electric bus equipped with Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Standard J3016 Level 4 ADAS technology. SAE J3016 Level 4 is defined as high automation with the vehicle performing all driving tasks autonomously while actively monitoring the driving environment. The technology is currently being operated at Robotic Research closed-course facilities.
