For three days the Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) were used in real-life demonstrations and tested by passengers.

The pods, which are part of a £20 million project, are designed to cut traffic and reduce journey times. They can even sense potential dangers and stop at red traffic lights.

They are the subject of a UK Autodrive three-year trial, which has seen collaboration between three global car manufacturers with the aim of making roads safer, the air cleaner and commutes more efficient.
