UK's first autonomous car road trip, 230 mile

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A modified version of the Nissan LEAF has completed the UK's longest autonomous car journey by driving itself the 230 miles from Cranfield in Bedfordshire to Nissan's manufacturing plant in Sunderland.

According to Nissan, the only times a human driver had to take over during the course of the journey was when the car had to drive into motorway services to be charged.

The official mileage for a Nissan LEAF with a 30 kWh battery is 130 miles on a full charge, although it isn't clear how much additional battery running the autonomous computer system required.

This is dangerous. Extremely dangerous. Unless roads are specifically designed for self-driving autonomous cars, they shouldn't be allowed on public highways.
