This brings together technology experts to design a platoon of autonomous vehicles to self-drive from Stockport station to Manchester Airport whilst having the option of checking-in en-route.


Project Synergy will introduce innovative technologies to operate connected autonomous cars in a platoon formation from Stockport railway station directly to the Arrivals terminal at Manchester Airport. Concurrently, a platoon of three pods will transit passengers to and from a car park in the airport to the passenger terminals. Project Synergy will facilitate inclusive accessible transport for the aged and the visually impaired.
