Driverless pod on show in Lake District

The Lake District National Park demonstrating a driverless pod to visitors in order to explore how Connected and Autonomous Vehicles could offer residents and visitors “accessible and sustainable” transport to reduce the need to drive and to cut carbon.

The Pod is at the visitor centre at the Brockhole grounds until the end of the month.

It says in order to be Covid-safe people may not be able to ride in it, but will be able to see it moving and talk to the marshals about it every Wednesday to Sunday.

This project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund as a part of the Low Carbon Lake District programme.
