Meet the Lutz pod, the UK’s first driverless ‘car’

The Lutz can seat two people and scoot around for 40 miles, or roughly six hours on a single charge. With a top speed of 15mph, it’s by no means the fastest mode of public transportation, but it should be just fine for helping commuters, shoppers and the elderly complete short journeys. It’s packing some serious hardware under the hood too: twin cameras and LIDAR sensors are fitted on the front, alongside a further two cameras and a single LIDAR on the back. They’re flanked by another two cameras on either side, which combine to give the vehicle a detailed 360-degree picture of its surroundings.
