Software firm Sensible 4 and Japanese retail company Muji have joined forces to develop Gacha, an all-weather autonomous shuttle expected to operate in Finland by 2020.
Sensible 4 is providing the technology for the vehicle’s positioning, navigation and obstacle detection. Muji is designing the vehicle.
Gacha will make its debut at a launch event in Helsinki in March 2019, and will then be available to riders in three cities: Espoo, Vantaa and Hämeenlinna.
Sensible 4 is now looking for industry partners who are interested in producing the buses as well as investors to accelerate the company’s growth.
