General Motors Launches Test of Autonomous Vehicles on Public Roads

By AR Sajid

General Motors plans to immediately begin testing autonomous vehicles on public roads in Michigan, the company said.

The announcement came a week after Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill to test public cars with no driver or steering wheel.

The automotive company said that for now it will have a human driver as backup in Chevrolet Bolt cars

GM added that the vehicles will be initially operated on the roads around its Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. The tests will eventually extend to the greater Detroit area.

The announcement came after the governor signed an initiative to test cars without a driver

The tests in Michigan will allow companies to test vehicles in snowy weather, which can be a challenge for cameras and sensors used by cars to navigate.
