The software should also be able to recognize that the check engine light is on, and that it needs to be looked at. Also, the use of sensors and satellite imaging would give us enough information to avoid accidents and people, while still being able to navigate to the destination.

The bus will travel at or below the speed limit to ensure safety of its passengers. It would need to be constantly scanning its environment and relaying that information into the software we would implement that would take many things into consideration. It would need to have the door close, which would operate like a door at an airport, where it clearly states the doors will be closing and to move away from the doors.
