robuCAB: People-movers à la française

French company Robosoft has created an interesting infrastructure-less solution to transit in the city. The robuCAB is a little electric four-seater that uses a pair of cameras to monitor the area in front of it and the curb, which it follows very very carefully. DARPA this isn’t.

Of course, if they take the same amount of care with their guidance software as they do with their picture galleries, I will not be going for a ride in one.
