Driverless bus in the Science Museum's Antenna science news gallery, 2007.
1-metre-long (1:5) model of a futuristic vehicle which aims to become a cheap and personalised mode of public transport, as an alternative to cars and current inefficient transport systems. It uses advanced navigation systems, intelligent cruise control, hazard avoidance braking systems and lane departure warning systems, with operating costs reduced by up to 50% by not using a driver. The buses will use 85% less energy than private cars and be emission-free in sensitive zones like pedestrian precincts. It promises to dramatically cut traffic congestion, air pollution and energy use in cities in the future including London during the 2012 Olympics. The full system is predicted to be ready to interact with other modes of transport in a city setting by 2017.
