The steering wheel, throttle and brakes of the autonomous electric vehicle are claimed to be controlled using a number of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms. The vehicle also comes with a host of sensors, leader cameras, microprocessors, automated action control systems etc.

The developers claim that this autonomous electric vehicle is capable of running a range of 40 km on a single charge. The battery onboard takes around four hours to be fully charged. The developers also claim that this vehicle can be used for multiple applications such as transportation, agriculture, mining among others.

They also said that such autonomous electric vehicles can be used to connect the metro stations with the adjoining areas for transportation. These electric vehicles can be used in other spaces like airports, universities, golf clubs etc. as well.

While this self-driving electric four-wheeler has been developed as a research project, there is no details available whether it would be produced for mass application or not.
