If the manufacturer manages to go through all the bureaucratic red tape, then in 2020, unmanned shuttles may appear on American roads
It is curious that the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) accepted a request from General Motors last year. It was assumed that cars with autopilot, which do not have a steering wheel and pedals (that is, without manual control), will go along the roads of the States this year. However, the NHTSA did not rush to make the appropriate decision.
Soon everything can change. According to Reuters, with reference to the head of the NHTSA, James Owens, the management is currently negotiating with an American concern about their autonomous car. It is expected that in 2020 the organization will make a positive decision. At the same time, Owens claims that there are still some obstacles to the release of autonomous vehicles on public roads. At the moment, the challenge is to make sure that autonomous vehicles are as safe as people-driven cars.
