Autonomous Vehicles In Nevada? Google Are Trying

Hi all,

Interesting story on mashable following up on a story we reported on back in October last year regarding Google’s attempt to introduce self driving vehicles.

Well it looks like they are beginning to take the process one stage further by lobbying Nevada state for permission to allow autonomous vehicles on public roads!

Mashable writes

Google has created a line of self-driving hybrids, including six Toyota Priuses and an Audi TT. The vehicles have been tested on more than 140,000 miles of California roads, at least 1,000 of which were driven fully autonomously.

It is believed that Google, who have hired Las Vegas based lobbyist David Goldwater, will try to amend two state laws, firstly regarding texting while in control of  a motor vehicle  and secondly to allow the testing of self driving cars on public roads.

Google will site safety as its main feature for altering legislation.

regards

James
