Driver-less Car

Blind Veterans UK have invited us to take part in a study to help further develop driver less car technology. This is open to anybody over 13, however priority will be given to Blatchington Court Trust Clients. Under 16s will need a parent/guardian to sign a participation agreement on the day.

‘Arthur’ is a fully autonomous vehicle that will reach 15mph and uses GPS and a Lidar system to navigate through its surroundings. The feedback from this world first trial will be used to improve the next generation of pods and make them more user-friendly.

This study focuses on the social and welfare impact of autonomous vehicles and involves behavioural studies through facial expression analysis.

This activity has been extremely popular, as a result we have had to book a second session for the afternoon. we have reached maximum capacity for both sessions and will allocate time slots in due course.
