Ride the future
Christchurch Airport's reputation as a test bed for innovation in autonomous vehicles continues to grow. Our combination of a safe physical environment for testing and an appreciation of technological advances has launched us – and our trial partner Ohmio – into this exciting field.
Our ongoing autonomous vehicle trial is changing up a gear, with the transition to New Zealand’s first Smart Shuttle. Produced by Ohmio’s transport technology innovators, this Kiwi-made vehicle is autonomous, electric, 3D printed and can carry up to 15 people!
Potential benefits of autonomous shuttles at the airport are exciting, and we look forward to a greater understanding of how these vehicles could contribute across our campus.
