Culham firm develops battery for Cybergo driverless bus

Help

An Oxfordshire company has developed a battery to power a public transport vehicle that is able to drive itself.

Cybergo uses a combination of GPS, lasers and cameras to navigate without the aid of a driver.

OXIS Energy in Culham has made the rechargeable lithium battery which replaces the standard combustion engine in the small bus.

Huw Hampson-Jones from the company said if the Cybergo was a success it would create new jobs at its Oxfordshire facility.
