DRIVERLESS POD in * Australia
* Victoria - Autonomous vehicles without steering wheel
--- A driverless pod with no steering wheel manufactured in Coventry, England has arrived for a year long stint in Australia... The new autonomous pod was on show at the World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) held in Melbourne earlier this month, as part of a partnership between the Australian Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) and autonomous vehicle developer RDM Group... It is the first time RDM Group has exhibited outside of Europe and underlines its intention to expand into new territories, including the Asia-Pacific market where it is already in talks with Government and Universities on providing transport solutions... Delegates at the show explored the pod on the ADVI stand and spoke to technical experts about the technology used and its capabilities, which include a top speed of 15 mph off highway, an operational range of 60 miles and the fact it can be built in two, four, six and eight-seater variants...
