Driverless cars to be launched on UK streets

In a first, Britain is set to introduce driverless cars on its streets – and the vehicles will share the pavement with pedestrians.
The first of a planned 100 electric vehicles will take to the streets of Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, which has helpfully wide pavements, from early 2015 as part of a 65 million pounds five-year project.
The self-driving ‘pods’ will carry two people plus their baggage and glide along a separate lane from pedestrians at speeds of up to 19 kph.
