Germany approves driverless vehicles on public roads

Germany has passed a bill that will allow driverless vehicles on public roads by 2022, making it possible for driverless vehicles to enter public roads without a human safety driver.

FleetEurope.com reports that under the terms of the new law, vehicles with Level 4 autonomy will be allowed – this means the computer handles all the driving in certain environments or conditions. In Germany, these vehicles will be limited to certain geographical areas.

It says Argo AI is one example of a company that will open a test site in partnership with Volkswagen.
