【加州放宽无人驾驶监管 无驾驶员监测车最早明年上路】

加州放宽无人驾驶监管 无驾驶员监测车最早明年上路加州监管者近日披露新规,最早将于明年允许没有人类驾驶员辅助的无人驾驶汽车在该州上路行驶。加州的规定仍然与联邦立法提案存在冲突,后者将在很大程度上禁止各州监管无人驾驶汽车。但对于希望在加州部署无人驾驶汽车的汽车厂商而言,这仍然是一大利好。这些新规有望于20186月生效。

California to allow autonomous cars WITHOUT a driver in bid to boost technology

  • Revised regulation could take effect in 2018
  • Will eliminate provision for 'physical control by a natural person'
  • 42 companies have permits to test autonomous vehicles in the state 

California officials Wednesday unveiled new regulations that would allow autonomous vehicles to operate on state roads in test projects without a human operator.

A revised regulation which could take effect in 2018 would eliminate a provision in an earlier draft that required 'physical control by a natural person sitting in the vehicle's driver's seat' in any autonomous car.

The language was replaced with a requirement for 'supervising the autonomous technology's performance of the dynamic driving task' and the proposed rules would also allow companies to introduce self-driving vehicles that can be used by the general public.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles said in the statement the change was made to remove a requirement which 'could be unnecessarily limiting on the development of the technology' and to provide flexibility to allow remote monitoring.

The new rules come with a growing number of tech firms and automakers testing self-driving vehicles, and follows new guidelines from the federal government aimed at spurring the technology widely believed to improve road safety and reduce accidents.
