On the roads of the UK by the end of the year will be unmanned vehicles




Until the end of this year, according to a note published by state ranks on UK roads should appear self-managed vehicles . BBC News Service found that the test trials of these vehicles will be held on country roads in the semi-autonomous mode, so that the person sitting behind the wheel, yet had the opportunity to take control of the vehicle in need. This decision is explained by the norms of safety.

All tests will be held under the patronage of Mobile Robotics Group and the University of Oxford , who worked together to adapt compact urban hechbeki Nissan Leaf for its independent movement. All prototypes have stereoscopic cameras, laser scanners and sensors that allow the car to pick their own safest and most convenient route.

“Perceptions about the possibility of reading the newspaper with a cup of coffee, while in his own car on the way to work – it is too far from reality,” – shared in an interview with BBC Paul Watters, head of the British Automobile Association.

“This is only the beginning, and it is unlikely unmanned vehicles instantly become mainstream. However, the realization that now we have a lot of different technologies, including unmanned parking system, adaptive cruise control and so on, can make the expected evolution of unmanned vehicles, not a one-day revolution in the automotive industry. ”
