Commuters will be able to hop on to one of two driverless public buses here from October 2020.
The driverless bus will have an all-aluminium body to keep it light and it will be electrically powered.
A consortium led by ST Kinetics, which is building the autonomous buses, expects to unveil a prototype by early next year. It will also launch four driverless on-demand minibuses on Sentosa next year.
The buses will have level 4 autonomy initially - where the bus will be able to drive by itself but will still be manned.
The testing of the buses will cover as many road scenarios as possible before they are rolled out to the public.
