Heathrow Airport Introduces Driverless taxi pods

Heathrow Airport has introduced its new $41 million dollar automated transport pods as a more environmentally friendly way for people to move around the airport.
The pods can travel up to 25mph and as well as being a green battery-powered alternative to traditional coaches, it also has the advantages of running on thinner tracks and the computerised management system is designed to prevent traffic jams and accidents.
Carrying up to four people at a time, the pods can take outbound passengers to the correct terminal using their flight information or by swiping a frequent flyer card and on return you simply tap in a code to be taken to the correct Heathrow Airport car park to collect your vehicle.
A similar system is currently operating at Singapore’s Changi Airport
