Law al­lows driver­less cars

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Self-driv­ing cars soon will hit the road in South Korea as the coun­try seeks to over­take other na­tions that have sped ahead with au­to­mated driv­ing tech­nol­ogy. Seoul National Univer­sity pro­fes­sor Seo Se­ung-woo says a self-driv­ing car de­vel­oped by his team will start roam­ing Seoul streets early next year thanks to a re­vised law that took ef­fect yes­ter­day. The new law al­lows au­to­mated cars to travel public roads around the coun­try. Eight self-driv­ing cars, in­clud­ing those of Seo’s team, are reg­is­tered with the trans­port ministry.
