AUSTRALIA, 11 December 2018 – A new autonomous shuttle trial which uses EasyMile’s EZ10 autonomous shuttle, was launched at Coffs Harbour in New South Wales on 11 December 2018. The autonomous shuttle trial is also a first for regional New South Wales, and will be implemented in three phases over a 12-month period.

The EZ10 will be covered in different designs during the different phases of the trial, starting with the indigenous artwork depicting the sacred importance of Muttonbird Island to the local Gumbaynggirr people.

The trial will incorporate smart traffic lights, on demand operation, roundabout navigation and mixed traffic operations.
