The UK's first Automated Vehicle trial with public participants

In a world first, the GATEway Project invited the general public to take part in a driverless pod shuttle service trial around Greenwich and share their opinion on the experience. Our aim: to understand how automated vehicles can fit into our future urban mobility needs and the barriers we must overcome before these vehicles become a reality on our roads. 

The full, final report is here, forming the bedrock of all current CAV trials and the development of standards.
