DMV green-lit cars to drive themselves
The automotive industry is evolving fast, and the latest
news in this field comes from General Motors.
Motors - the American multinational corporation – announced that it
received a permit from the Californian Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to
let the cars drive by themselves. According to the company’s statement, the
autonomous vehicle unit - Cruise - will drive around San Francisco without a
human driver by the end of 2020.
The cars without a human backup will drive at first in some
regions of the city, and at a later date, will be implemented all over San
GM, however, is not the first company to release autonomous
cars. Waymo said that it would open a driverless ride-hailing service in Phoenix.
Waymo, which is part of Alphabet
Inc, is looking to expand also in California.
Both companies' efforts to implement self-driving cars comes
after an SUV operated by Uber hit a pedestrian in 2018.
Currently, General Motors' stock price is trading 1.47%
