Driverless cars are set to make ‘groundbreaking’ journeys between Oxford and London in just two years’ time. It will be the culmination of a 30-month programme, which Summertown-based Oxbotica today said was the most complex trial of autonomous vehicles ever undertaken. The cars will travel in both urban areas and on motorways, with closed-road demonstrations starting in Oxford from early next year. The consortium behind the project – DRIVEN – is being led by Oxbotica, based in Mayfield Road. It will aim to address key practical issues such as how a fleet of driverless vehicles should communicate with each other, the possible cyber security threats that poses and how they should be insured.
