        Volvo Buses and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) Singapore have jointly announced a full size, autonomous electric bus. The bus can travel in all weather conditions and can recharge itself automatically.
        The Volvo bus is equipped with advanced sensors and navigation controls and guarded against hackers by a cybersecurity-backed artificial intelligence system. The first of two buses has undergone preliminary rounds of rigorous testing and is ready for further road tests on the #NTUsgSmartCampus.
