Registration opens for the UK’s first public driverless vehicle trials

0

Members of the public can now register to take part in the UK’s first public driverless vehicle trials, due to take place later this year. The trials, which will take place in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, are part of the GATEway (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment) project, an £8m research project to investigate the use, perception and acceptance of autonomous vehicles in the UK.

Taking place in the UK Smart Mobility Living Lab at Greenwich and led by TRL, the trials will see fully electric automated vehicles navigating their way around Greenwich.

In addition to physical vehicle trials, members of the public can also register to take part in workshops to help envision the future of driverless vehicles. Those with experience or knowledge of Greenwich are also encouraged to share their views on driverless vehicles via a web-based sentiment mapping tool.
