Published April 19, 2012 By Huw Evans Weve already heard about Googles somewhat controversial autonomous vehicle test program which began two years ago using Toyota Prii and other vehicles. The sighting comes just days after the California Senate passed Bill 1298, which enables the California Highway Patrol to set standards and performance requirements relating to autonomous vehicle testing. Speaking with Wired, a spokesperson for Google said, in the course of our work, we experiment with testing our algorithms on various vehicles to help improve our technology.
