Gacha by Sensible4 and designed by Muji is an autonomous shuttle bus designed for everyday use for people around the world – and for all weather conditions. The bus takes autonomous shuttles to a whole new level. Powered by Sensible 4’s self-driving software and wrapped in Muji’s stylish design can be fully integrated in existing public transportation systems. Taking the city’s people to work, school, hobbies and wherever within the bus’ predefined zone of operations.
Gacha is different from other similar projects not only in its ability to cope with all weather conditions, but also in the design, developed by Muji: in particular the lack of a front or rear of the vehicle. The interior seats follow the soft rounded shape of the bus, creating more space for passengers, while the LED light line serves as both a headlight and a screen for external communication. The inspiration for the design came from a toy capsule, a universal shape that conveys joy and brings joy.
Because of the shuttle’s condition-defying intelligence and performance, Gacha smoothly navigates in heavy traffic and complicated urban surroundings. Offering smart, safe and sustainable on-demand transportation all year around. Sensible 4 is currently producing a development fleet to be used for public open road pilots in 2020 in various cities in Finland and abroad. The series production of the shuttle bus is planned to be set up in 2021. For the same year, we have planned Gacha’s first permanent commercial operations to be established with integration to public transportation systems. You can already order the bus to your city, campus, business park or any other district that benefits from an autonomous shuttle bus of tomorrow.
