Testing autonomous buses in China

Some of the Go West management team got up close to electric and autonomous buses during a recent trip to bus supplier Yutong’s factory in Zhengzhou, China.

General Manager David Haoust and Maintenance Manager Darren Babich viewed the production line and testing facilities and were passengers in an autonomous bus.

They also inspected the T12 bus, a new European coach designed for Australia.

“The production line takes about five hours to build a bus with 15 workers around 15 stations,” David said. “It is a very impressive and efficient precision operation.”
