History has shown time and time again that progress cannot be stopped. Nevada legislators clearly knew that as they pass a law authorizing driverless cars. Assembly Bill No. 511 gives the Nevada Department of Transportation the authority to develop rules and regulations of driverless cars. “shall adopt regulations authorizing the operation of autonomous vehicles on highways within the State of Nevada.” is the exact wording and is a big door to the future.
It’s just not Google with autonomous cars. BMW has a clever race track-only trainer and VW just unveiled a near production-ready system, dubbed temporary auto pilot, which scans the road ahead so the driver can sit back and enjoy the ride. This is done through lane detection, speed monitoring and works up to 120 kph. Minority Report, here we come.
