Autonomous passenger vehicle transport in Australia has taken a leap forward with the launch of Darwin’s first driverless shuttle bus.

Travelling between Stokes Hill Wharf and the Darwin Waterfront in the Northern Territory, the EZ10 shuttle bus can carry up to 12 passengers at a time. Along with pioneering Australia’s advancements towards autonomous transport, the electronic driverless shuttle is also a pillar of environmental progress with zero emissions when operating and a capability of running for up to 12 hours per charge.

Created by EasyMile, it is guided by GPS and multi-sensor localisation technologies. It’s also fully air-conditioned and comfortable, providing welcome relief from Darwin’s hot and humid weather.

Our local team in the Northern Territory, in collaboration with our London office, are excited to have worked with the Darwin Waterfront Corporation to ensure insurance and risk management coverage for this project.

“Autonomous transport technology is no longer science fiction – it’s here and we are leading the way”

Michael Gunner, NT Chief Minister.
