A driverless "POD" is whisking students to the other side of the campus at Masdar City (near Abu Dhabi). These EV vehicles go 25Mph and can reach a range of about 37miles on a single charge. So, charging every hour then? Built by a dutch company called "To Get There," these cars are trying to fill Masdar's dream of being a "zero carbon, zero waste, car-free city." RFID and other onboard sensors help the Personal Transportation System (PRT), keep it on task and able to avoid obstacles. Although this "city" provides a 1600 meter round trip for these PODs, they are setting a good example for everyone else.
