Automaker Gets Green Light to Road-Test Driverless Cars in California
Chinese automaker Changan has received clearance to test autonomous vehicles on public roads in California, a company executive said over the weekend.
California’s regulations for road-testing unmanned cars took effect in September 2014. As of last month, the state’s transportation department had issued 43 road-testing licenses.
Manufacturers that apply for a license need to undergo simulations of complex traffic scenarios to ensure they can safely operate on public roads, according to the state’s compliance authority. In addition, manufacturers are also required to put down a $5 million security deposit with the government.
