This Dutch driverless shuttle is the first of its kind to actually hit the open road.

On January 28th, the WEpod self-driving vehicle entered into a test phase where it will be navigating around the Wageningen University campus. Earlier this week, the electronic bus took its first passengers down a few hundred meters of a rural route in the Netherlands. There is hope to expand to a fleet of WEpod vehicles operating in the area.

The driverless shuttle is the first to be on public roads for an extended period of time, where as the Ultra Pods at Heathrow were on closed routes for a limited time and won't be tested on the streets of London until later this year.
