The reason people choose automobiles over public transportation is to be able to benefit from efficient door-to-door journeys, but what if you could have a hybrid experience with this autonomous smart car? It could take you along for the ride. Part of the LUTZ Pathfinder program, the Transport Systems Catapult is being tested as the first driverless vehicle in urban United Kingdom. It will increase the safety of transit and reduce traffic.

This compact auto is has an innovative design, complete with 19 cameras and electronic sensors that help it to drive on course, to stop when required, and to navigate from origin to destination. The two-seater autonomous smart car can recognize other vehicles on the road, scooting along on sidewalks with its painted Union Jack flashing proudly.
