Autonomous Cars Are Driving on Our Streets. Welcome to 2018

Autonomous Cars Are Driving on Our Streets. Welcome to 2018 Over the course of 2017, we saw some major steps forward when it comes to autonomous vehicles. This technology has been on the horizon for some time, but it’s finally hitting the streets in various forms. In July 2017, a US House Committee gave its approval for the SELF DRIVE act, a groundbreaking piece of legislation intended to underpin the safe introduction of autonomous vehicles. The bill is set to allow automakers to field 25,000 such cars in their first year of... [Lire la suite]
