Before the year is up, Singaporeans could be hopping on these driverless pod vehicles to get to school and work. The pods run on electricity, and are able to travel autonomously on smaller roads, such as those within a gated community or school campus. They've established a new joint venture called 2getthere Asia that will operate and maintain the vehicles in the city state. The cars are expected to be able to handle a load of up to 8,000 passengers per hour going in a single direction, 2getthere said. The pods look like they're going to be larger versions of the ones that already run in Abu Dhabi's cleantech business park, Masdar City -- also produced by 2getthere and SMRT back in 2010.
