Who’s On First? GM Sets 2019 Driverless Debut Date
The car, which would have no steering wheel or gas pedal, must be approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Current regulations assume the need for a human driver, and convincing NHTSA that GM's Cruise AV matches can match the safety levels of a human-driven car will be no small feat. If GM wins federal approval, it would also need to pioneer approvals in most states. Currently, the car could only be deployed in Michigan, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Texas, Colorado, and Nevada. Looks like there's a long way to go before GM hits a home run.
