Start-up firm will begin with a 10-month long data-gathering exercise in outer London

UK-based self-driving start-up FiveAI is gearing up to start trail of its shared autonomous car fleet in London in 2019, TechCrunch reported last week. The trial will first begin with the company deploying five human-controlled cars on the roads of London’s outer boroughs of Bromley and Croydon to gather information on road environment and the behavior of road users including drivers, cyclists and pedestrian, for the next 10 months. FiveAI will start offering rides in its autonomous fleet after this data-gathering exercise.
