Estonian startup, Auve Tech, is making history with its cooperation with the University of Tartu. Together, they have teamed up to develop the world’s first-ever autonomous hydrogen fuel cell shuttle. This shuttle is similar to the one from EasyMile but runs on hydrogen rather than a battery.

Inside the shuttle are low-temperature hydrogen cells. These cells produce energy from hydrogen from within the shuttle. Finally, the self-driving shuttle was deemed ready and has just driven its first test kilometers publicly.

Auto Trendy’s take:

These self-driving shuttles are slowly starting to make more and more headlines. As such, it seems that they will slowly enter the market with the potential of becoming the norm. With that, it’s nice to have multiple powertrain options – and Auve Tech seems to be the leader for hydrogen-powered self-driving shuttles.
