Roboshuttles are a new type of vehicle that we first saw emerging at the start of the last decade. Since then, many companies have shown interest in roboshuttles. They have generated excitement through their small size and bidirectional travel opening new use cases, such as operating in pedestrianised areas. Companies like Navya and EasyMile have been selling roboshuttles to other companies looking to investigate their use in small trials. Some have been able to expand to large trials involving tens to hundreds of units.
