London looks to roll out driverless cars

London cilt

It seems that by later on this year, Londoners will be able to enjoy the use of driverless cars around the city.

Known as the Gateway Project, it will see the capital of England become one of the first cities in the world to have this mode of transport, reports New Scientist.

Exact numbers and routes are still to be decided, but the pods, as they're called, will be autonomous and they'll take you along public roads to your destination.

This is something of a revolution when it comes to transport and the vehicles are going to be piloted in small urban areas of the United Kingdom.

Testing the effectiveness of the pods will be Greenwich, Milton Keynes, Coventry and Bristol - meanwhile, other cities around the world that are going to be receiving similar test projects are Singapore, Austin, Texas and Ann Arbor, among others.
