driverless

From January 2015, up to three UK cities will trial driverless cars on their roads.

£10 million is available to host driverless car trials. A review of current UK road regulations will determine an appropriate system for testing driverless cars in the UK.

 

 

The review will concentrate on two key areas, reports Next Green Car:

  1. Cars with a qualified driver who can take control of the driverless car
  2.  Fully autonomous vehicles where there is no driver

Transport Minister Claire Perry said: “Driverless cars have huge potential to transform the UK’s transport network – they could improve safety, reduce congestion and lower vehicle emissions, particularly CO2. We are determined to ensure driverless cars can fulfil this potential which is why we are actively reviewing regulatory obstacles to create the right framework for trialling these vehicles on British roads.”

This Department for Transport announcement means that driverless cars will appear on mainstream UK roads in less than six months.
