Nevadas Legislative Commission of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) approved regulations allowing the testing of driverless a.k.a. Nevada DMV Director Bruce Breslow said the state is the first in the U.S. to adopt this type of regulation requirements, and that an application package for companies that want to apply to test their autonomous vehicles in Nevada will be available on March 1. The law was passed in July 2011 and defines autonomous vehicles as a motor vehicle that uses artificial intelligence, sensors and global positioning system coordinates to drive itself without the active intervention of a human operator. Breslow said the state is currently developing licensing procedures for companies that want to test their autonomous vehicle technology, and is requiring certification before an autonomous vehicle can be registered in the state.
