Gateway driverless shuttle trials start in Greenwich

Driverless shuttle in Greenwich

Autonomous vehicles will be driving round the complex urban environment of Greenwich in London following the start this week of the latest phase of the Gateway Project, which is researching public acceptance of, and attitudes towards, driverless vehicles.

The trials are not about robotising existing forms of transport, such as the car, but examining ways to optimise mobility for the urban environment using new modes of transport enabled by automation.

Registration opens for UK public driverless vehicle trials

Members of the public can register to take part in the UK’s first public driverless vehicle trials, due to take place later this year. The trials, in Greenwich, London, are part of the Gateway (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment) project, an £8m research project to investigate the use, perception and acceptance of autonomous vehicles in the UK.
