SANTA CLARA (KRON) — Students at Santa Clara University can now ride around campus in a self-driving shuttle, university officials said.
The university launched the pilot program that will run until Feb. 7 in partnership with local startup Auro Robotics.
Students, staff, faculty and guests can all use the shuttles.
“We believe this to be the first operating driverless shuttle on a university campus in the United States,” university spokeswoman Tina Vossugh said in a statement.
The shuttle can transport three passengers at a time, and will operate in a loop, making five stops on campus.
It will run from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon on Sundays.
