London’s Heathrow Airport is rolling out futuristic driverless pods to shuttle passengers between terminals and the airport car park. The pods will be a much easier way of getting around. Each pod is capable of carrying four adults and two children along with their luggage. The futuristic driverless pods will shuttle passengers between London’s Heathrow Airport and the airport car park. Heathrow says passengers will have to wait no longer than a minute for their pod to arrive. When still the pods’ battery will recharge and will use 70 per cent less energy than a car. The pods will be a vast improvement on the existing shuttle buses which use conventional roads around the airport. If the trial at Terminal 5 is a success, Heathrow hopes to roll out the system across the entire airport – covering 48km of track.
