France aims to roll out new high-speed TGV trains… with no drivers

France plans to step into the future with a new train design. The new trains will not have human conductors, but rather artificial intelligence will control the Metro. A human, knowledgeable in this technology, will accompany the train in case of any problems. While this new technology may cost a few people their jobs, it will be an increase in efficiency. Testing has not yet been completed on this design and will not involve human passengers until safety is assured.

Key Takeaways:

  • SNCF France will be running automated trains without anyone driving.
  • These driverless trains are going very fast but it is believed that they will be perfectly safe.
  • They will be tested first carrying freight instead of people.

“French rail chiefs SNCF have revealed ambitious plans for France to become the first country in the world to roll out driverless high speed trains, according to France TV info.”
