Driverless Taxi’s?

Autonomous Taxi’s which don’t require a human as back up are one step closer to becoming reality after a test programme was announced which would trial these “on demand, driverless services” on public roads from next year.

Delphi and Transdev are looking to launch 2 Renault “Zoe” autonomous taxi’s in Rouen, Normandy and a shuttle van between a rail station and a campus in the University district of Paris-Saclay to trial this super cool scheme. During the scheme there’ll be drivers behind the wheel to take over if any problems arise, but the plan is to phase out behind the wheel drivers for employees at a central dispatch location to watch over journey’s and take over from there, manually if required.
