Driver-less cars have been tested on the streets of Milton Keynes since 2015, the biggest test bed of autonomous vehicles in Britain.

By mid-2018 some 35, fully SAE level 5 autonomous vehicles will be in operation, sharing pathways with pedestrians and equipped with sensors to avoid obstacles.

The driver-less pods, which can carry up to four people each, can accommodate wheelchairs, prams and luggage and are able to travel at a maximum speed of 15mph.
