Airfields, farms and towns could become test facilities under plans to increase income from robots free of human operators
Factories, farms, lakes and towns will become proving grounds forrobots, drones and driverless cars under plans handed to the government on Tuesday that would transform Britain into a leading test centre for the machines.
Decommissioned nuclear plants at Sellafield, the nation’s deepest mine at Boulby in Yorkshire and Loch Linnhe near Fort William are among places being eyed up as facilities to put the next generation of robots through their paces.
The strategy would see airfields co-opted for experimental drone flights and towns such as Milton Keynes used as tough urban proving grounds for driverless cars, where navigation, object-avoidance and automated parking can be tested to the limit.
