As of today, driverless cars are being tested in Britain, and the four chosen areas will all be testing a different vehicle each.
In south London, driverless passenger shuttles will be ferrying people around the O2 Arena while over in Coventry and Milton Keynes the LUTZ pathfinder pod will be ripping around pedestrianised roads. But the best has been left for Bristol, in the form of BAE system’ Wildcat.
The government are pouring money into this at the moment, in order to make the UK as much of a hub for technology as possible. And why not? They say by 2030, people will be able to swap their normal vehicle for a driverless one. In fact, that actually scares the sh*t out of me. So I’ll wait till 2040.
