There’s been a lot of talk about self-driving cars recently. Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, and Google are all racing to debut the first car to drive completely by computer. Though they are all getting close, we are still a few years away from fully autonomous cars.
But British scientist Tom Scott is already enjoying self-driving cars in Greenwich, London. The Transport Research Laboratory is testing Meridian Shuttles that are completely autonomous. There’s no backup driver at all. Of course, they go very slowly and only drive in pedestrian areas, but it’s a start!
