The British town of Milton Keynes will get a fleet of 20 driverless cars by 2015, the UKs business secretary Vince Cable has said. The pods will carry up to two people, travel along special pathways, and reach a top speed of 12 miles per hour (19 km/h). The UK government has yet to reveal the specifications for the vehicles, but a mock-up video shows that passengers will be able to book them with a smartphone app, and that the pods themselves will be equipped with a screen that allows access to the internet, music, and other entertainment. The Guardian reports that the first route scheduled for the driverless cars will be between the towns railway station and a shopping center 20 minutes away on foot. The Milton Keynes cars wont be the first driverless vehicles tested in the UK.
