FiveAI, a leading UK company developing technology for driverless vehicles, has started data-gathering in the Boroughs of Croydon and Bromley to develop its venture to trial a shared driverless passenger service in London by 2019. 


Up to 10 Five AI’s vehicle’s will be driven for 10 months by fully trained, human safety drivers in the same way as any normal, road-going vehicle. The vehicles are not demonstrating autonomous technology at this stage. 


The data-gathering exercise is designed to enable FiveAI to gain a comprehensive understanding of the road environment and the behaviour of all road users including drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.
