U.S. authorities up to 2015 are planning to develop and adopt a legislation for the operation of robotic vehicles (cars without drivers) on U.S. roads. Currently, the technology to create a fully robotic cars far ahead of U.S. laws, because the laws in most states in the U.S. state that "any vehicle must to be controlled by man." U.S. lawmakers recently began discussing the need to update the legislation to encourage the development of unmanned vehicles, as technology develops so fast, that there was a risk of advancing the existing laws, some of which date back to the era of coach-carts. Already have the first success. In June 2011, Google lobbied the adoption of the law of Nevada, which authorized the use of unmanned vehicles on public roads and in May 2012 the Department of Transport of Nevada (Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles, DMV) gave Google a license, and an independent monitoring committee at the DMV approved license plate design with infinity symbol on a red background for robotic vehicles. In September 2012, California legalized the use of automatic vehicles, take an appropriate bill of robotic vehicles. Google Inc. in recent years successfully developing the project «Google Driverless Car» (unmanned vehicle Google- Googleauto) with robotic systems for vehicles, that allows the car to move both on country and on urban routes with little or no interference person. Google Driverless Car System uses information, which are collected by service Google Street View, special cameras, LIDAR sensor on the roof, radar in the front of the car and the sensor, which helps to determine the position of the car on the map. The project now heads the Google Driverless Car engineer Sebastian Thrun, director of the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at Stanford University, one of the authors of the service Google Street View, his team also worked on the project Stanley at Stanford University, he also received a prize of $ 2 million from the Ministry of Defense, won the competition in 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge. Team of Sebastian Thrunn is developing an unmanned vehicle and includes of 15 engineers, which had previously worked on the project DARPA Grand and Urban Challenges. Back in 2010, Google has tested a several robotic vehicles, equipped with Google Driverless Car. Without human intervention, a car Google Driverless Car, drove 1600 km autonomously. The only accident occurred when another vehicle drove into the Google Driverless Car, which stopped at a traffic light. According to Google, the automated system Google Driverless Car can reduce the number of accidents, injuries and deaths, while using the fuel, and roads more efficiently. At present, the project Google Driverless Car use a 7 cars: 6 Toyota Prius and one Audi TT, as well as 12 drivers and 15 engineers. Google also announced that it has expanded fleet of unmanned vehicles by hybrid crossover Lexus RX450h, which are necessary to test the system in areas with difficult terrain, THE VIDEO:
