Smart cities must bring communities with them
Smart cities with autonomous traffic will have to work with all the stakeholders to become a workable reality.
That’s the message from the launch of London’s Smart Mobility Living Lab (SMLL) dedicated to testing automated driving technologies both in the real and virtual worlds.

It consists of three main sites including an off-road testing ground at east London’s Olympic Park, an on-road monitored network of inner city ‘smart’ roads near its headquarters in southeast London’s Woolwich and a Human Factors Research Lab, based at Loughborough University in the Midlands, that is equipped with a range of equipment to support research into human factors in automation.
