Driverless Taxi System to Make Air Freshener Trees Obsolete – PRT – Gizmodo

We’ve heard about automated transport pods for years, but London’s Heathrow Airport has just opened the first complete system, a $41 million network to take air travelers to their cars.

The four-passenger personal rapid transport (PRT) vehicles shuttle people from Terminal 5 to one of the airport’s parking lots. It’s as easy as hopping in, entering your destination on the touchscreen and sitting back while the vehicle navigates specially constructed mini-roads at 25mph to your lot of choice.
