PSFK Takes A Ride On The Heathrow Pod
Our team travel the new intelligent buggy system serving London Heathrow's Terminal 5.
Yesterday afternoon, PSFK checked out the new automated vehicles that they have introduced earlier at London’s Heathrow airport. These wheeled little unmanned cars follow a set of tracks around the airport and to the surrounding car parks. From a station at each location, travelers can use a screen to call their own pod to ride on. They indicate the location they’re traveling to and then a pod is summoned to a kind of loading bay where the traveler and up to four others can get on. After the ‘start’ button is pressed, the pods travel a series of sky bridges around the airport.
