UK’s First Driverless Car: Paul Newman’s Group provide the technology

Wednesday 11 February 2015

The UK’s first driverless car was unveiled today using intelligent imaging technology developed by BP Professorial Fellow in Information Engineering Paul Newman (Keble)  and his team at Oxford University’s Mobile Robotics Group.   The prototype vehicle – or autonomous pod -  is built by the RDM Group, Coventry. Called the Lutz Pathfinder, it was driven around public spaces in Greenwich today and will later be trialled in Milton Keynes.

More information about the project is available on the BBC website.
