The California Department of Motor Vehicles approved rules for the testing of self-driving cars on the state's roads, according to reports.
The DMV approved rules to allow the testing of robotic cars on Tuesday which will being on Sept. 16, according to Ars Technica. The new rules will allow Google to test its self-driving cars, as well as other manufacturers in hopes they will be approved for consumer use.
“The DMV has a really, really difficult task, and I was impressed with the thoughtfulness of their approach,” Bryant Walker Smith, a fellow at the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS), told Ars Technica. “I would say that anyone who is reading these documents will have to read very closely.”
