The London Underground's Victoria Line, opened in 1968, was designed to run under automated control. Officially it was never run without a "driver". Unofficially there has been at least one instance when the driver (or ratherm, manual supervisor) got out of the cab without disabling the automation, and the train took off without him, no harm done.
