Around 100 people in London will get the opportunity to take part in the trial of a driverless shuttle bus.

The prototype bus will run along a route in Greenwich over the next three weeks.

The buses will be controlled by a computer and travel up to 16.1 km per hour, although there will be a trained person aboard who can stop the shuttle.

According to Oxbotica, the firm that developed the technology behind the shuttle, some 5 000 people had applied to take part.
