The world's first radio-free autonomous train was tested in Zhuzhou, China. The train, which is considered as a combination of bus and tram in design, proceeds on virtual railways, represented by white lines.
The system called Autonomous Rail Rapid Transit (ART) can create a virtual route by determining the dimensions of the road with the help of sensors. The project, which started to be developed by China-based CRRC Corporation Limited in 2013, aims to solve the transportation problems of the crowded regions of China. ART is seen as a less costly and less energy consuming alternative from the subway.
