Driverless cars may hit road in Singapore in next 12 months

And now, SMRT Services, the country’s privatized public transportation company, is planning to launch driverless Group Rapid Transit (GRT) cars by the end of next year.
The vehicles would hold 24 people, seating approximately 12 people while allowing for standing room for 12 more. Essentially, they would operate as mini buses, akin to automated shuttles that could be used to transport people across the city. The GRTs would be fully automated and 100 percent electric. They would operate using a magnet based navigation system and obstacle detection system.
