Driverless pods in the Lake District

With the increasing shift towards environmentally friendly vehicles many areas within the UK are adopting sustainable travel methods.

The Lake District National Park is set to introduce electric driverless pods which will allow people to visit the National Park in an environmentally sustainable way.

The driverless pods, which were be trailed on the 27th and 28th April are electric self-driving vehicles. The pods use cutting edge technology and include sensors which are used to detect road conditions and obstacles. The pods will be used to transport people in across the National Park in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

A demonstration of the pods will be being held on-site at Brockhole on Windermere, giving the public the opportunity to experience the vehicle first-hand and to share their thoughts on this sustainable transport type.

If the driverless pods succeed at the trails they will be seen as a viable method of transport within the Lake District National Park.
