The autonomous ID.Buzz could see service in Hamburg as soon as 2025, with ride-pooling services to be provided by Volkswagen's mobility service provider.

07 Sep 2021 | International News : Germany

Volkswagen has revealed an autonomous ID.Buzz ahead of the IAA Munich International Auto Show 2021. Still shod in black and white camouflage, the autonomous ID.Buzz is set for series production by 2025.

The autonomous system is being developed in collaboration with self driving technology firm Argo. The system comprises a suite of sensors, software, and the computer platforms to provide a 360-degree awareness of the vehicle's environment, predict the actions of pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles, and direct the engine, braking, and steering systems so that the vehicle moves safely and naturally, like an experienced driver.

The prototype vehicle is currently being tested on Argo's brand new closed-course track at Franz Josef Strauss International Airport in Munich, Germany, and will soon be deployed on the streets of Munich itself.

The goal is to deliver self-driving ID. Buzz vehicles for commercial services in the city of Hamburg in 2025, with autonomous ride-pooling services to be run by VW's subsidiary Moia, a Mobility as a Service provider.
