Supervised tests of a potential autonomous car service built by a UK-based artificial intelligence firm have begun in two London boroughs.

Autonomous technology firm FiveAI has started testing five self-driving cars in Bromley and Croydon as the latest step in its plans to eventually roll out an autonomous, car-sharing service in London. The company hopes to begin passenger trials in 2020.

As part of the test, the five vehicles will operate on all days of the week and all times of day and night, with trained safety drivers in the vehicles at all times to take control if required.

FiveAI first began gathering data by manually driving their sensor-enabled cars on London streets last year to help build the software required to run the tests.
