Minister Melanie Schultz-Van Haegen yesterday took a first test ride in the WEpod; the first fully autonomous vehicle to drive on the Dutch public road.
The WEpod is the first fully autonomous vehicle to appear on the Dutch public road. This driverless vehicle will be operating a service between Ede-Wageningen railway station and Wageningen University. In order to forestall any possible danger it is equipped with extensive safety and control systems. Technolution has provided the technical coordination and integration in WEpod, but has also created the connection between the WEpods and the control room in Ede.
