Football Mascot Bradley Lowery Is Set to Receive Life-Saving Treatment

  Football Mascot Bradley Lowery Is Set to Receive Life-Saving Treatment ​Sunderland fan Bradley Lowrey has received some great news as he has been selected to be part of a special cell trial that could be life saving. The five-year-old, who suffers from neuroblastoma, has captured the hearts of football fans worldwide and he could receive new treatment in the near future.Bradley made an appearance at Wembley Stadium a week ago as he walked out with Sunderland skipper Jermain Defoe in England’s World Cup qualifier against Lithuania.

A driverless shuttle bus is to be tested around pedestrianised public areas of Greenwich, London, it has been announced.

Project Gateway, which stands for Greenwich Automated Transport Environment, is the latest in a series of public driverless shuttle services in pedestrianised areas, and will take place around the UK Smart Mobility Living Lab.

Autonomous cars to require specialist insurance

The project is funded by £5.5 million from the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills, as well as a further £2.5m from partner firms, which include Heathrow Enterprises, O2 and Royal Sun Alliance. The project is also receiving funding from the Government’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV).

Driverless pods begin ferrying the public around Greenwich

  Driverless pods begin ferrying the public around Greenwich It's been almost a year since the UK's Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) opened sign-ups for a driverless pod trial in Greenwich. The original plan was to start before Christmas, but given today's date that obviously didn't happen. Still, better late than never, eh? Over the next three weeks, roughly 100 people will clamber aboard "Harry," a self-driving shuttle named after clockmaker John Harrison. It will take them around a two-mile course in North Greenwich, near The O2, to demonstrate how the technology could be used for "last mile" trips in urban areas.

The shuttles are provided by Westfield (known for its Lotus Seven spin-offs) in conjunction with Heathrow Enterprises and Oxbotica. The shuttles have a top speed of 10mph, four seats and no steering wheel or other visible controls.

Autonomous cars could cut traffic in Britain by 40%, says report

Developers of the Gateway project say that its purpose is to further explore the possibility of driverless mobility solutions, as well as to find what progress needs to happen before they can be used on public roads. Public reaction is also to be gauged during the project.

Unlike other mobility schemes, such as Tesla’s proposed scheme for shared mobility solutions, drop-offs will be at select locations only, rather than passenger-requested locations. Gateway also stresses that an operator will be inside the vehicle to take control in the event of an emergency, in accordance with the DfT’s legislation for autonomous vehicle testing.

Driverless cars – what you need to know

What you need to know about self-driving cars: We’re solidly into 2015 now, which means that this year, self-driving cars will begin testing on UK roads. Yes, Bristol, Coventry, Milton Keynes and Greenwich will host trials of autonomous cars, and with Audi’s driverless A7 Sportback recently completing an unmanned 560-mile journey between California and Las Vegas for the tech-filled Consumer Electronics Show, manufacturers are proving the technology is ready and waiting.This year self-driving cars will begin testing on UK roads.

It’s a very real possibility, which means drivers (well, actually, they might just be passengers) should gen up on everything there is to know about autonomous cars. Here’s the lowdown.
