The vehicle, which was developed by MW Power Systems in Stoke-on-Trent, is used to deliver basic training to people who do not normally have access to a computer. The "Orbital" bus has ten workstations for learners, plus one for the tutor, Internet access through an onboard satellite connection, a projector and a SMARTboard interactive whiteboard.
