CAV Forth - the UK's first autonomous bus service


What is Project CAV Forth?

CAV Forth is a collaborative project part funded by the UK Governments' Centre for the Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV). 

A consortium of UK partners are in the process of designing and developing a fleet of full size autonomous buses that will service a new Stagecoach operated route running from Ferrytoll P&R in Fife, across the Forth Road Bridge into Edinburgh Park's transport interchange. 

The project has emerged from an existing partnership between Fusion Processing, Alexander Dennis Ltd and Stagecoach which has already automated a full size bus able to drive itself around our Sharston depot in Manchester.  Other partners include Napier University, Bristol Robotics Lab and Transport Scotland.

 

 

Co-designed with public, staff and stakeholders!

CAV Forth aims to bring this ground breaking technology closer by proving its capabilities in a real world environment, completely open to the public as a registered Stagecoach service.

Building trust in this new technology, understanding how the experience as a passenger might change, and why anyone should care are all key questions which we have been exploring together with people in and around the local community.
