The first driverless cars are set to hit the streets of Britain within weeks as a brand new fleet is rolled out in London. The £8million project will come to fruition by the end of November, as the pilot project gages public opinion on the autonomous vehicles.
Greenwich Borough has been preparing for the state of the art cars since winning the bid to road test the new technology last year. The futuristic fleet will run along a one-and-a-half mile route around the Greenwich peninsula. The earmarked path runs from the InterContinental Hotel to John Harrison Way, close to the O2 Arena.
Eagle eyed residents have spotted new ‘pod’ markings on the pathway, with cyclists and pedestrians expected to share the remaining space.
