Self-driving cars of the future

Waymo, as well as Honda, Uber and Lyft, penned a letter to NHTSA asking for progress to be made in refining the rules to help streamline the development of autonomous cars.

The governing body is in a tricky position with existing laws and has been grappling for more than three years to address the problem posed by the emerging tech.

It urged the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to ‘promptly’ remove regulatory barriers for cars necessitating they have all traditional features.
‘NHTSA should move promptly to remove barriers while ensuring safety,’ Waymo said in a letter posted last week.
Legislation controlling the manufacture of cars dictates they must meet more than 70 auto safety standards, even if they are redundant.

Waymo says a lot of the rules are not vital to self-driving cars because they work and operate in a completely different way to traditional vehicles.
