London has, for once, got ahead of the game when it comes to mass transit systems.
18 of these driverless pods are coming to Heathrow so that passengers can travel from their cars to the terminals quickly and easily.
The ULTra pods are electrical and follow a route that is electrically tagged. When used at Heathrow the pods will arrive within 1 minute of being called and will normally operate in 10 second intervals.
Could this be the future of urban mass transit? I hope so.
