The third-generation GRT is an exceptionally high-tech transportation pod that is designed to allow residents of Singapore to enjoy public transportation of the very highest quality, all within the comfort and novel environment of a fully driverless pod

These driverless transportation pods are capable of seating between eight or twelve people, on top of which it also offers space for about a dozen standing passengers. The pods are completely electric and are pushed along by lithium iron phosphate batteries that enable them to hit a top speed of 40 km/h. The pods are equipped with obstacle detection systems that ensure the safety of passengers as well as motorists and pedestrians, and offer comforts such as air conditioning.

Ultimately, these transportation pods show that the future of public transportation is set to be far more exciting and will involve something more revolutionary than hopping on a crowded bus or train.
