New York Accepting Applications for Autonomous Testing
The state of New York has officially begun accepting applicants for autonomous testing. This process, allows testing of self-driving vehicles on public roads, according to Governor Andrew Cuomo. New York’s 2018 budget allows for a year long pilot program for this self driving technology. The main requirement for eligibility, is the insurance policy covering the auto-vehicles. Companies must provide proof of a $5 million insurance policy to drive the vehicles. They must also have a licensed driver behind the wheel, at all times. New York looks to become the major hub involving technology innovation, especially in self-driving vehicles.
