U.K. Rolls Out Road Testing For Driverless Cars
The U.K. has started limited testing of driverless vehicles, starting with a diminutive people-mover.By Evan Thomas | February 11, 2015
Hands-free cars are cleared to start testing in the U.K. after a government investigation found there were no legal speed bumps in the way.
And the funding is all set: The Telegraph reports "Chancellor George Osborne committed £20m in funding to quest for driverless cars in the 2014 Budget."
The first vehicle to get the test-drive honors is the LUTZ Pathfinder, a product of the Transport Systems Catapult, a government incubator focused on transit technology.
