Google got the ok from the Nevada transportation authority (DMV) to allow their driverless vehicles on the states roads.
This is a big step for driverless vehicles, however they must hold a $1M insurance bond, and file in advance the planned test routes and have two people in the car at all times (I assume while it is driving around).
Arstechnica has the story. I can't wait for self driving cars. I like driving but commuting can really suck, sometimes on long drives also wouldn't it be nice to say "car take me to #destination and wake me up when we are 10 minutes away"
