Africans are making waves all around as Pasi William Sachiti builds driver-less cars in the United Kingdom.
He was able to achieve that with the combination of advanced robotics and driver-less vehicle technology under his startup, Academy of Robotics.
It should be noted that the vehicle was developed in collaboration with the UK’s vehicle authority so that it could ply the road at 96km/h.
According to Face2Face Africa, the young entrepreneur moved to the UK at the tender age of 16 and started his first business at the age of 19.

Schiti studied at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Aberystwyth. The driverless vehicle got launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.
Though the autonomous car is made for neatly paved roads, it can go through unmarked roads without having to depend on its GPS.
The vehicle works with an app that controls, making it very easy for people to get their goods and meet it like a delivery man.
