Submission + - Driverless buses ruled out for London, for now (wordpress.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The office of the Mayor of London went into a bit of a panic this week after their own paper suggested that driverless buses could appear on the streets of the UK's capital at some point in the next four decades. The Mayor's office went so far as to suggest that they were really talking about driverless underground trains. Even more bizarre was the reaction of the city's taxi drivers' association — whose spokesperson claimed that the fauilure to deliver "simple" software tasks such as speech recognition meant there was no chance of driverless buses appearing on London's streets.
