The first autonomous vehicle on Dutch public roads

The WEpods in Ede and Wageningen

Welcome at WEpods.com

Something unique is about to unfold in the Province of Gelderland. For the first time worldwide, self-driving vehicles called WEpods are about to take to the public road. There are already self-driving vehicles such as the Rotterdam Rivium shuttle bus and the Heathrow shuttles in London, but those vehicles operate on dedicated lanes. In Gelderland, the WEpods will be mixing with regular traffic.

This innovative pilot is an initiative of the Province of Gelderland. The WEpods will be circulating between Ede-Wageningen railway station and Wageningen University & Research centre (WUR), as well as on the WUR campus.
