The Conscious New York City Bus
Team: Stephen Thomas, Ben Brown, Rut Neiconi, Stephanie Skuzenski
The conscious bus project proposes a seamless user experience that connects riders and maintainers with fleet of accessible, adaptable, smart driverless New York City buses. The resulting system more efficient and more pleasurable to use.
The Driverless Future Challenge sought proposals that would actively shape the city’s response to driverless cars. Entries from more than 25 countries proposed everything from driverless food carts and a fully-autonomous MTA transit system, to enhanced use of NYC’s 311 system as a driverless dispatching center, and Link NYC Wifi stations that become stops for autonomous micro-busses.
