Japanese tech group DeNA takes mobile to driverless buses

DeNA's "robot shuttle" service will debut next month at a shopping center in Chiba.

TOKYO -- DeNA, a Japanese company known for mobile gaming, is hopping onto a new business with self-driving buses.

The company will provide a "robot shuttle" service beginning next month at a shopping center near Tokyo, DeNA said Thursday. With help from wireless carrier NTT Docomo, the company aims eventually to expand use of the buses from private property, such as malls and factory and university campuses, to public roads.
