London boroughs host data gathering exercise for automated vehicles

27 June 2019

Story from Road Safety GB.

A UK company has started data gathering in two London boroughs as part of plans to trial a shared driverless passenger service in the Capital next year.

The exercise, which is taking place in Croydon and Bromley, is designed to enable FiveAI to gain a ‘comprehensive understanding’ of the road environment and the behaviour of all road users including drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

As part of the 10-month project, up to 10 vehicles will be driven by trained human ‘safety drivers’. The vehicles are not demonstrating autonomous technology at this stage.
