Autonomous Linking Pods May Be Commuter's Dream

Autonomous Linking Pods May Be Commuter's Dream


Pod picks you at at start of commute

Connects to other pods en route
You transfer to destination pod
Which drops you off right where you need to be

    Next Transportation, a company that launched at the World Government Summit in Dubai in February 2018, is planning a door-to-door transportation system of electricity-driven autonomous pods that combine and separate at need. The system is designed to work in cities with heavy commuter populations, as well as smart cities.
     An individual pod could pick you along, along with others in your immediate area, and then connect to other pods moving in the same general direction, forming a bus. While en route, you would be directed to move to a different pod to be on the one that will deliver you to your destination.
     To see how this would work, watch this video by Dubai Media Office.
     Can't wait already? Unfortunately, there isn't a word about how soon these pods will be on the road.
     In another development, a company in South Korea has successful tested its first fully autonomous bus at the country's largest international airport. According to a press release in November 2018, Telecommunications company KT Corp.'s self-driving bus drove 2.2 kilometers at 30 kilometers per hour near IIA's Terminal 1, a drive that included accurate responses to traffic signals and safe changing of lanes.
     So yes, driverless vehicles have now gone beyond science fiction into science fact.
