Autonomous vehicles without manual controls

Post by 93Regina » Fri Aug 30, 2019 9:30 pm

GM, Lyft, Waymo want to be allowed to remove driver controls on
autonomous cars

Roughly 90 organizations and individuals have submitted public
comments on a proposed regulation on easing rules for self-driving
vehicles.

Notably absent is Tesla, which has been very public about their
aspirations for testing and deploying autonomous vehicles.

General Motors and Alphabet’s Waymo are among the companies
encouraging federal safety regulators to swiftly, yet safely, update
laws to better accommodate the testing and approval of fully
autonomous vehicles on U.S. public roadways, even those without driver
controls
...
...
Regulators are considering allowing vehicles without manual controls,
including steering wheels and pedals, to operate on U.S. roadways.
Current laws require such equipment, and companies have to request
exemptions to launch such vehicles.
...
...
The Center for Auto Safety, a Washington-based consumer advocacy organization, said it remains “skeptical” about companies testing vehicles without manual controls, citing “there is no demonstrable evidence” that the vehicles “can safely operate on (and off) America’s roads.”
