WeRide Robobus employs a fully autonomous design, integrating WeRide’s proprietary software and hardware solutions. Outfitted with lidar, high-definition cameras, blind-spot lidar, and millimeter-wave radar, the minibus achieves a comprehensive 360-degree awareness of its surroundings, featuring a 200-meter range obstacle detection capability.

Despite its compact size (5500/2050/2650 mm), the minibus accommodates up to ten passengers. Powered by a single 120 kW electric motor, it has a top speed restricted to 40 km/h and an NEDC range of 300 km. It can accurately recognise lane markings, traffic lights, signs, pedestrians, and other vehicles, facilitating seamless navigation through intricate urban traffic scenarios.

Robobus made its mark in Beijing, Guangzhou, Wuxi, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, and now in Las Vegas at CES 2024. CES visitors have the opportunity to experience the Robobus’ autonomous driving firsthand.
