Autonomous vehicles are a part of the tech-infused future we are all envisioning to be a part of. Imagine a scenario where you are ready to go to work and instead of booking a standard cab, you call for an autonomous vehicle that has no driver. The self-driving car has full autonomy, and it safely drives you from point A to point B, without needing any assistance from the passengers onboard. While this exact scene might be a few years away, there are multiple companies working on making this a reality.
UK-based startup FiveAI competes with Google and Uber
FiveAI has been testing its self-driving cars in Croydon and Bromley boroughs of London since August last year. While it is on the same path as its bigger western rivals like Uber and Waymo, the company has faced almost no hostility from the public. For example, some autonomous cars by Uber and Waymo were defaced and repudiated by the people in the US.
