Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) at Heathrow Airport - Driverless Personal Transport

BBC has a nice little video news story about the new computer-controlled passenger transport pods at Heathrow. It includes some nice shots of the video monitoring, computer map, and of the pods in use, and also includes a brief history of this form of transport, and a sound bite by a hopeful business owner about deploying this in smaller cities.
