Driverless Karsan e-ATAK Started Carrying Passengers in Norway!

Offering advanced technology mobility solutions with the vision of being 'One Step Ahead in the Future of Mobility', Karsan continues to grow in European markets. Level 4 autonomous electric bus “Karsan Otonom e-ATAK”, developed by Karsan together with its technology partner ADASTEC, started to provide public transportation services in Stavanger, Norway. Thus, it became the first autonomous technology bus to carry passengers in the city in Europe. At the project launch in the city of Stavanger, the official opening ceremony was held at the bus stop at Nedre Strandgate 89, stating that Karsan Otonom e-ATAK started its public transportation service. Norwegian Minister of Transport Jon-Ivar Nygård, Karsan CEO Okan Baş, ADASTEC CEO Ali Ufuk Peker, Norwegian politicians, a large number of press members and senior executives of Karsan, ADASTEC, VY Buss, Kolumbus and Applied Autonomy companies that helped bring the project to life. Karsan Otonom e-ATAK carried its first passengers from the bus stop at Nedre Strandgate 89 to the Concert Hall at the ceremony held with the participation of the participants.

Commenting on the subject, Karsan CEO Okan Baş said, “With our vision of always being one step ahead in the future of mobility, we are shaping the future of transportation with the innovative products we have developed as Karsan. Karsan Autonomous e-ATAK, our driverless vehicle used in real traffic conditions on the Michigan State University campus, is now starting public transportation service in Norway with this project. This is a first in Europe. We are very happy that for the first time in Europe, urban public transportation will be provided with our driverless electric vehicle Karsan Autonomous e-ATAK.” he said.

Carrying the technologies of the future to the present and shaping the sector with its pioneering moves, Karsan continues to break new ground with its innovations in the electric public transportation market in Europe. Autonomous e-ATAK, which has Level 4 Autonomous technology that can move autonomously on a planned route, can drive autonomously at a speed of 50 km/h, day or night, in all weather conditions. What a bus driver does; Autonomous e-ATAK, which performs all operations such as docking at the stops on the route, managing the boarding-off processes, providing the management and administration at intersections and crossings and traffic lights, without a driver, started to serve in Stavanger, Norway. Opening for official use in Stavanger with the participation of Norwegian Minister of Transport Jon-Ivar Nygård, Karsan CEO Okan Baş, ADASTEC CEO Ali Ufuk Peker, Norwegian politicians, VY, Kolumbus, Applied Autonomy, Karsan, ADASTEC company executives and many press members. ceremony was held.

Karsan and ADASTEC broke new ground in Europe!

Emphasizing that Karsan has already started to develop technologies for the future with its e-Volution vision, Karsan CEO Okan Baş said, “With our vision of always being one step ahead in the future of mobility, we are shaping the future of transportation with our innovative products that we have developed as Karsan. Karsan Autonomous e-ATAK, our driverless vehicle used in real traffic conditions on the Michigan State University campus, is now starting public transportation service in Norway with this project. This is a first in Europe. We are very happy that for the first time in Europe, urban public transportation will be provided with our driverless electric vehicle Karsan Autonomous e-ATAK.” he said.

“We will be at the forefront in the transportation of tomorrow”

Ali Ufuk Peker, CEO of ADASTEC, the technology partner of Karsan's autonomous e-ATAK model in this project, which is a first in Europe, said: We are very proud that it is in active use today. Norway is one of the countries where mobility is developed at the highest level. In this sense, we are excited to sign a collaboration that will accelerate our research and development efforts and further develop our flowride.ai SAE Level-4 Autonomous Driving Software Platform, not only in this route, but also throughout the country and globally. The use of this new level 4 driverless bus in Norway today marks an important milestone in our position at the forefront of tomorrow's transport and our contribution to tomorrow's mobility.” said.

Level 4 autonomous technology equipped with a special sensor

Autonomous e-Atak, which can detect its environment without the need for the driver, has many LiDAR sensors located in different parts of the vehicle. In addition, many innovative technologies such as advanced radar technology on the front, high resolution image processing with RGB cameras, and extra perimeter security thanks to thermal cameras are among the features of Autonomous e-Atak. Autonomous e-Atak, which can offer all these technologies as Level 4 Autonomous, can move autonomously on a planned route. The vehicle, which can drive autonomously at a speed of 50 km/h in all weather conditions, day or night, is what a bus driver does; It performs all operations without driver, such as docking at stops on the route, managing the boarding-and-going processes, providing management and administration at intersections and crossings and traffic lights.
