TAMPA — Vendors on Wednesday morning showed off the driverless electric shuttles they plan to offer for such local projects as the Marion Street Transitway in downtown Tampa.
The demonstrations were part of the Florida Automated Vehicle Summit that took place in Tampa on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina. During Wednesday's expo, French company Easy Mile presented the shuttle service "EZ10," which runs on virtual tracks.
Siemens and NXP Semiconductors also hosted a "live connected vehicle" demonstration. Participants were driven around on a half-mile course. The technology was an example of some of the systems expected to be featured in a downtown pilot program through HART and the federal Department of Transportation.
