'UK’s first self-driving electric bus unveiled

The UK’s first self-driving electric bus service has been unveiled as part of a project to explore “the art of the possible”. First Group said it will analyse how passengers, drivers, other road users and pedestrians respond to autonomous buses at a business and technology park in Oxfordshire. The project involves two all-electric fully-autonomous vehicles on public roads. A minibus providing a circular service transporting people around Milton Park near Didcot was demonstrated on Monday and will begin public operations in early February.
