Governor Brown Paves the Road for Hands-Free Driving in California
Yesterday, Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that would create safety standards for driverless cars - or “intelligent transportation” - in California.
The bill effectively legalizes autonomous driving - once the technology catches up. And it’s not far off. Tech researchers and automakers at the forefront of the movement predict that we’ll be seeing robo-cars on the road by 2015; by 2040, they say, drivers’ licenses may be obsolete.
