We had some special guests on the Darwin Autonomous Shuttle last week! It was a pleasure to welcome Blue Peter and the UK’s new science minister to Harwell Science and Innovation Campus on 27 September.
Science minister George Freeman was at Harwell to launch the national space strategy at the UK Space Conference. While he was here, he took a ride in our self-driving shuttle, created by Navya.
It was also great to meet the Blue Peter team, who filmed a bit for the show in the shuttle. We’re looking forward to seeing it in action on a future episode!
Update: The shuttle and one of our drones appeared in the latest episode of Blue Peter, ‘New Competition Alert’! You can watch it on iPlayer over here. If you’re in a hurry, you’ll find the drone at around 6m30s and the shuttle around the 9m20s mark.
