David Keene believes he's found the perfect city for winter-testing his driverless pods, while at the same time establishing a North American headquarter for his U.K. company.

"We came here last year and we were really surprised with what's going on here in Ottawa," said Keene, CEO of Aurrigo Canada.

The Coventry-based company designs and builds the Pod Zero, an autonomous vehicle that can seat up to four passengers and transport them short distances within pedestrian areas, all at an average speed of 10 km/h.
