USAD, Urban Shuttles Autonomously Driven This projects aims at the development of vehicles capable to drive autonomously in a urban setting, so to allow to increase the offer of public transportation to citizens, even in very low-demand conditions. These devices would allow reasonable costs for the service provider, and therefore for the customer, while providing a 24hours on-demand service. We believe this is the only option to support a decrease in the number of private-owned cars. Another potential application is the movimentation of goods in urban settings, so to obtain a city-wide low-cost public logistic system. Others are sharing our vision, see this page.

This research is aimed at the development of the enabling technology, i.e., autonomous navigation, which implies, in our view, to solve the perception side of the navigation. This research activity is led by IRAlab, Univ. Milano - Bicocca (http://www.ira.disco.unimib.it), and is perfomed together with AIRlab, Politecnico di Milano (http://airlab.elet.polimi.it), and Info Solution S.p.A (http://www.infosolution.it).
