Germany's National Railway Plans To Remove Human Drivers

It's all part of a plan to provide efficient, door-to-door transportation that competes with Uber

Germany wants to replace human-driven trains with autonomous railway cars, as part of a grand master plan to provide end-to-end public transport throughout Europe. In an interview with Germany’s WirstschaftsWoche, Deutsche Bahn’s CEO RĂ¼diger Grube called self-driving trains "a major project for the railway."
Deutsche Bahn is Germany’s historic national rail company, and it operates all kinds of systems, from trains to car-sharing to bike-sharing programs.
