The state of Nevada approved a law authorizing the Department of Transportation to develop laws and regulations on the use of cars without drivers, such as the vehicles developed by Google that drive on their own.
Ryan Calo, Professor at Stanford University, believes that this can be seen an important breakthrough. This law could be a step forward in improving the safety of cars without drivers.
According to law, the Nevada Department of Transportation “shall adopt regulations authorizing the operation of autonomous vehicles on highways within the State of Nevada.”
Standards of safety and performance will have to be implemented by the Nevada Department of Transportation, as well as special areas where such cars can be tested.
Google has taken steps recently so that this law would be adopted on a large scale.
