Bonfiglioli supplies low-noise differential transmissions driven by electric motors for all-electric battery-powered autonomous shuttle buses. Designed for a limited number of passengers, both seated and standing, autonomous shuttle buses are common on university campuses and busy city streets to bridge the first or last mile of a trip. Fully autonomous, these buses can harness artificial intelligence to choose the most efficient route based on real time pick-up and drop-off requests, but may also be driven along a pre-determined route. Thanks to their lightweight design and optimized helical gears, Bonfiglioli transmissions guarantee energy efficiency and an extended battery life. With a single-speed gearbox, the vehicle is also easy to drive and requires reduced maintenance.
