Self-driving cars have hit Great Britain

The first self-driving car has hit the roads of South East England, but it doesn’t look anything like an ordinary car. This futuristic autonomous vehicle looks more like a two-seat pod.

It’s fully electric, and it can’t go faster than 15 mph. During its first trip in Milton Keynes, it drove 5 mph and stopped for pedestrians using camera sensors.

This time next year, residents could expect to see 40 of these traveling pods on the roads.
