Test driving a driverless tractor in Southampton

The next generation of driverless tractor has been put through its paces in Southampton.

The Ordnance Survey, where the tractor was tested, has been working with CNH Industrial to develop new pinpoint-accurate mapping technology needed to let tractors drive by themselves.

The technology paves the way for meeting the mapping and tracking requirements for driverless cars.

More and more car and technology firms have been partnering up to develop self-driving vehicles.

Aside from pioneer Google, companies like Tesla are also developing the technology, while Chinese car and tech firms have also made significant progress.
