(Self) drivers wanted: Canberra autonomous test program seeking participants

Seeing Machines is seeking 30 test drivers to get involved in a new self-driving trial in Canberra.

First off 'BlueMotion': blue represents the elements of water and air, while motion is about the need to keep things moving towards the future.
