NEVADA - Freightliner gets the green light to test its self-driving 18 wheeler tractor-trailer truck, but you won't be seeing it next to you on your way to work. They're only testing the big-rig in Nevada and only on the state's public highways. A licensed truck driver will remain behind the wheel.
Only Nevada, California, Florida, Michigan, and the District of Columbia have explicitly legalized self-driving vehicles. The states have done so mainly to encourage product testing.
When it comes to self-driving cars, it's argued they'll cut down on the 33,000 car-related deaths in the U.S. each year. It is also expected to reduce the 90-percent of driving accidents that are caused by human error, alcohol, drugs, inexperience, speeding, and wet or icy roads.
Google’s self-driving car is still in development, but some are currently being tested on the road. Uber is looking to one day run its app-driven ride-hailing service without drivers. It's working with Carnegie Mellon University to research and develop a new self-driving car program.
