The Mercedes-Benz Future Bus comes with CityPilot, a largely autonomous driving system.

CityPilot can navigate tunnels, junctions with traffic lights and roads filled with obstacles.

It'll even stop at bus stops, loading and unloading passengers autonomously.

Of course, a driver will still be present in the event human intervention is required.

Mercedes has already tested its CityPilot system in the Netherlands, covering some 20 kilometers of tunnels, tight turns and highways.

CityPilot works thanks to nearly a dozen cameras, GPS and two different kinds of radar.

Of course, this is just a concept for now, so municipalities shouldn't be foaming at the mouth to get these on roads just yet.
