Estonia to launch the world’s first unmanned hydrogen-powered shuttle

The Estonian authorities have approved the use of an unmanned shuttle powered by hydrogen fuel on public roads.

There will be no operator in the shuttle – control is carried out remotely. The cabin can accommodate six passengers. The company positions shuttles as transport for transporting people over short distances to their homes from major urban transport hubs.

The new mode of transport was developed by Auve Tech in cooperation with the University of Tartu: it will appear on the streets of the Estonian city of Tartu on 5 July.

When moving, the shuttle emits only water vapor and heat energy. The manufacturers did not specify whether all citizens will be able to use the shuttles.

Auve Tech CEO Johannes Mossov, in a commentary to ERR, specifically emphasized the importance of using hydrogen transport for the environment as an environmentally friendly replacement for cars.
