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 autonomous 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 autonomous vehicles.
