While my primary interest in robotics is as it relates to horticulture and agriculture, I’ve also long been interested in the potential utility of robotics in urban transportation, especially when combined with a different sort of infrastructure from what we now have.
So when I saw a pointer to a Spiegel article titled Bringing Robot Transportation to Europe on Slashdot, I had to see what it was about. [2012-Oct-11: This article is no longer available at the address that was originally linked.]
As it turns out, that article describes a type of system which the Innovative Transportation Technologies website has been tracking for a decade.
