Britain to Test Driverless Cars on Motorways Next Year

Britain to Test Driverless Cars on Motorways Next Year With no legal barriers, autonomous vehicles will be hitting “some local roads.” Britain said it will begin trialing driverless cars on motorways for the first time in 2017, as it moves toward its goal of allowing autonomous cars to take to the streets by 2020. The government said last year there were no legal barriers to the technology being tested and gave the go-ahead for vehicle trials to start on some local roads. Finance minister George Osborne will announce plans on... [Lire la suite]
