Autonomous driving technology has been showcased in rural Britain for the first time thanks to a groundbreaking presentation by Aurrigo. The company, based in Coventry in the English Midlands, has been demonstrating its self-driving vehicles at Alnwick Castle and the Alnwick Gardens in Northumberland. The “Great Self-Driving Exploration” event, part of a study led by the U.K.’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and strategy specialist BritainThinks, allowed members of the public to get up close to Aurrigo’s vehicles and even enjoy a ride on them. In operation was the firm’s Auto-Pod, which carried one or two passengers on a shared 1,640-foot path connecting the Alnwick Gardens to Alnwick Castle.
