An interesting experiment has been going on in London. Since 2011, a fleet of pod like vehicles has been transporting tourists between terminals at London airport. A British engineering firm RDM Group uses technology from Oxford Universitys Mobile Robotics Group to drive them. While humans drive them now, they hope to produce a AI driving version soon. Take my $, I want one! Zero emissions and zero noise as well. Below is a link to the article. Enjoy!link

I would ride in one of these. Once all the safety kinks are ironed out. I wouldnt wanna be in the beta test of the driverless ones.

They would be even faster if there were a skyrail system. I'd love to have a whole network of these going above the officeblock rooftops. Then you'd never need to get caught up in the congestion or underground.

Seems a little more comfortable than Mr. Garrison's invention.

yes, but if they are connected to the same database, that will prevent congestion and traffic as well.

Lets just say we could finally get rid of cars and their pollution.
