A self-driving bus is a robotic vehicle designed to travel between destinations without a human operator. They combine sensors and software to control, navigate, and drive the vehicle. This vehicle uses LiDAR and RADAR and several other sensors for its operations. Bus door system is a hinged piece or object that allows entry/exit of the passengers. Many companies are developing these door systems in innovative manner. For instance, Schaltbau Holding offers smart door systems/intelligent door systems for self-driving shuttle buses and other vehicle concepts. There is a wide range of products of bus door systems. Electric inward swinging doors, pneumatic inward swinging doors, pneumatic outward swinging doors are a few examples of these systems.
The autonomous bus door system market is driven by factors such as improved safety coupled with the reduction in traffic congestion, rise of connected infrastructure, and increase in demand for fuel-efficient, high-performance, and low-emission vehicles. However, high manufacturing cost and data management challenges restrict the market growth. Moreover, development of smart cities and supportive government regulations create lucrative growth opportunities for the market expansion.
