RDM Group showcases driverless pods for local authorities
The ‘Pod Zero’ range has been developed by Coventry-based RDM Group, which is heavily involved in the Government-backed LUTZ and UK AutoDrive projects, and will be available in two, four and eight-seat variations, aimed at organisations looking for a first/last mile transport solution.
David Keene, CEO of RDM Group, said: “All our pods will have a range of 60 miles and will able to travel with a top speed of 15mph. We have also ensured that they have been designed to accommodate disabled people and have wheelchair access.”
He concluded: “We are in advanced negotiations with a number of international parties keen to be the first to adopt the Pod Zero range. These include airports, universities and Government departments and could be worth in excess of £15m.”
