Back in may we heard that Google would be testing out their self driving cars in California, as soon as Google had received the necessary approval to drive the vehicles on the street in California.
Yesterday, California’s governor Jerry Brown singed a bill which makes driving the self driving vehicles on California’s roads legal, and Google will now start testing the vehicles in California.
“Today we’re looking at science fiction becoming tomorrow’s reality,” Gov. Brown said. “This self-driving car is another step forward in this long march of California pioneering the future and leading not just the country, but the whole world.”
Google’s Sergey Brin revealed that Google are hoping to have their employees testing the self driving cars within the year, and he is hoping that the technology will be used on a larger scale over the next few years.
