Department of Motor Vehicles, California has granted a permit to the ride hailing-company to test its self-driving cars on public roads. The multinational giant was developing an autonomous program to be the next step in its business plan before the horrendous car accident of its fleet. It then drastically scaled back its self-driving car project in yhe face of public and government concerns.
Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said that driverless cars will be rolled out on public roads in Pakistan in next few years. The minister stated that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government plans to introduce technology in every field and will ensure all road users understand these latest technologies. Self-driving cars could reduce road deaths in the country by 90%, he assured.
