Google’s new driver-less car can now drive on the roads in Nevada. The Autonomous Review Committee, which was created specifically for this case, approved Google’s petition to test drive the vehicles in this state. Nevada officially changed its law to allow driver-less cars in March.
Two Google employees must be in the model car, a Toyota Prius, at all times in case something goes wrong, although they do not actually drive the car.
The Prius is controlled by computers, video cameras, radar, and a laser range finder to help navigate the vehicle. So far, the driver-less car has traveled 140,000 miles with only one accident that caused minor damage.
California is also considering a similar law change to allow these vehicles on the road.
