Heathrow Airport's automated vehicles

They call it the 'Heathrow pod', and it's a new way of getting around the urban jungle. Rather than waiting for a bus, business travelers just pop on a pod.

Now let's try this with snow! So much for using their rotational tire measurement for distance. :D

#3 Nothing is FREE. Do all of the pod's employees/administrators donate their time, the manufacturer donated the car's construction and costs? There's always costs and always someone/the public paying.

Nonetheless, cool system but I hope they don't do this for all transportation, I like driving autonomously too much.
