Planning continues for driverless carsThu, 13 Mar 2014 00:00:00 -0700
OFFICIALS in California have been looking to the future as they bid to legislate for the arrival of hi-tech driver-less cars.
A law passed in 2012 set a deadline of the end of this year for the state's Department of Motor Vehicles to decide how to legally integrate the so-called autonomous vehicles - which were once the stuff of science fiction but could be commercially available by the end of the decade.
The latest talks on the matter among roads officials focused on how the vehicles will record actions so the data can be used to reconstruct an accident in an effort to trace the cause.
