Driverless trains by 2023

It is in France not the UK but sign of the future perhaps? I doubt the unions will let it happen in the UK.

---------------------------------------------------------------

France's SNCF rail network plans driverless trains by 2023
Germany's Bosch engineering company is part of the consortia developing driverless freight and passenger trains over the next five years. The project is part of the modernizing drive for the French state railway.

French state railway concern SNCF announced the project for mainline, long-distance trains which is to be financed by the SNCF, the French state and commercial partners. French cities, including Paris, already have driverless metro trains.

The €57 million ($66 million) first phase of the development is divided into two consortia:

A prototype for driverless freight trains which includes the commercial Alstom, Altran, Hitachi-Ansaldo and Apsys (Airbus) companies
A passenger train prototype for regional TER routes which will be developed in partnership with Bombardier, Bosch, Spirops and Thales.
SNCF said it is in discussions with Deutsche Bahn to promote a European standard for driverless trains.

Director of the autonomous train project Luc Laroche said: "These human and technological issues are considerable ones. We are mobilizing the collective intelligence, competence and savoir-faire of our partners from the varied world of industry."

"These partners constitute a world first for ambition, approach and combined skills," Laroche said.
