Autonomous car testing on open roads in France from next year

Autonomous car
Autonomous vehicles will finally be tested on open roads, starting next year. The government will indeed take measures to allow testing.

The decision was taken last week at a meeting of the “steering committee autonomous car” (it is not known if there is a pun intended) which Arnaud Montebourg and Carlos Ghosn (CEO of Renault) participate . A call for proposals will be launched jointly, notably to develop technologies related to vehicles.

In practice, a text will allow the use of a vehicle, duly authorized on the roads practiced by the everyman. However, only certain areas will be affected and not the whole territory. They will not be known until September, but it seems logical that are part Yvelines. PSA and Renault are in fact possess infrastructure tests. It is also there that we were mounted in Next Two, the proposed autonomous vehicle Renault.
