Robot Cars Now Officially Legal In California

Cyrus Farivar, writing for Ars Technica:

“The new law obliges the California Department of Motor Vehicles to draft regulations for autonomous vehicles by January 1, 2015.”

DMV may not be the timeliest agent for change, but the legislature is moving California into the future anyway. Joining Nevada as a testbed for autonomous vehicles, California’s roads will provide a more complex test for Google and other software makers.

We’re slowly moving toward a Minority Report future for our highways. Can’t wait.
