Driverless Miss Daisy

A small black and white pod shaped vehicleDriverless vehicles will soon be transporting retirement village residents around the place. IRT Group, a retirement living provider, has formed a partnership with RDM Autonomous to trial driverless vehicles in their retirement settings. This is one way to make sure older Australians aren’t left behind with technology. The trial, called Pod Zero, will be programmed to navigate private roads in the IRT communities. The pilot will also provide evaluation feedback to designers and operators. You can read more about this in the Australian Ageing Agenda article. The UK Daily Mail also has an article about this vehicle.
