Driverless cars trials to start in the UK by 2019

A consortium of British companies unveiled a plan to test driverless cars on UK road two years from now.



The cars will be linked by a network allowing them to be informed in real time of hazards and should operate in almost full autonomy, yet they will also have a human on board. The project is backed by an £8.6m grant and involves an insurance company.

Though this amount seems relatively small when compared to the amounts invested by Google, Volvo or Daimler (Mercedes-Benz mother company).
