A taxi without a driver

London's Heathrow Airport has launched automated taxis. Heathrow Airport is one of the biggest and the busiest airports of the world. It is so big that most passengers finds it hard to walk from one terminal to another terminal. These taxis takes you anywhere in the airport. You just need to get in and press the button on the touch screen. When you reach there simply swipe your card.
