Testing of a new autonomous electric shuttle at North Greenwich today.

There's very little available on the internet about this - I've only found a  month old article in the Mail Online.

Paradoxically, even though they've done away with the driver they seem to feel the need to hire half a dozen marshals for this test. Somewhat like the red flag man required by the Locomotive Act. Or perhaps they're there to make sure nobody tries to make off with the autonomous vehicle.
And they've converted the cycle lane on the Thames path, moving bikes and pedestrians together on what was the pedestrian lane near the Emirates Airline.

Pink Flock

I saw this in the car park near work. It's a Mini in a non standard pink flock finish.

I had to touch it. I wonder how easy it is to keep clean?
