Self-Driving Cars Impetus for Strong Economy
Prime Minister Lamothe got a sneak peek at Google's new self-driving vehicle during his visit to the company. Google plans to roll out a fleet of self-automated (SA) vehicles as soon as drive-testing is completed. With hundreds of thousands of miles driven, no malfunctions have occurred.
Tesla and Nissan also have plans to release SA vehicles. Tesla wants to design an auto that will perform 90% of driving tasks; Nissan wants to offer affordable SA vehicles to consumers by 2020.
