To understand how automated vehicles can fit into our future urban mobility needs and the barriers we must overcome before these vehicles become a reality on our roads.
What we’re doing
Conducting a number of different trials to understand how people respond, engage with and accept automated vehicles and exploring the potential impact this technology could have on our cities.
How it works
Our GATEway pods use a combination of sensors, cameras, lasers and software to safely navigate their way between leisure sites and residential locations around the Greenwich Peninsular.
“Automated vehicles will revolutionise the way in which we move people, goods and services around urban areas, with predicted benefits to safety, efficiency, the environment and mobility”
