One law to rule them all

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

State and ter­ri­tory roads min­is­ters have agreed to fast-track the changes needed to roll out highly and fully au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles in Aus­tralia – by 2020. “Aus­tralia is one of the first coun­tries to make this bold com­mit­ment to 2020,” Na­tional Transport Com­mis­sion chief ex­ec­u­tive Paul Ret­ter said. “We want to give cer­tainty to man­u­fac­tur­ers by en­sur­ing our reg­u­la­tory sys­tem is flex­i­ble and re­spon­sive to en­cour­age in­no­va­tion.” The changes will clar­ify who, or what, is in con­trol of a self-driv­ing ve­hi­cle, and remove the need to show proper con­trol by hav­ing a hand on the wheel.
