The Future of Self-Driving Cars

October 2017

A United States Senate panel recently approved a bill to fast track self-driving cars.  The bill will have to pass the full Senate.  However, passage is expected.  The bill will not speed the process for self-driving commercial trucks.

The future of self-driving cars on the road leaves open many questions.  As more self-driving cars move on to the road many legal concerns will have to be addressed.  How will self-driving cars be able to demonstrate that they are safe?  Will self-driving cars be required to have a human on board?  How will they be regulated?  These are just a few of the questions that will have to be addressed as self-driving cars move on to the highways.
