General Motorssays it is ready to mass-produce a self-driving vehicle that has no steering wheel, pedals or any other manual controls. Other companies like Ford, Mercedes and Waymo are all planning to release cars with no steering wheels in the near future.
"Our self-driving vehicle is the result of intensely focused development, and countless hours of real-world testing and validation".
General Motors will soon unveil the self-driving Chevrolet Bolt, a auto not equipped with pedals or a steering wheel, leaving control entirely to the vehicle's AI.
"We have not yet shared detailed on locations, but we now test our driverless cars in downtown San Francisco, Phoenix, and metro Detroit, and we plan to expand to New York City this year". What is the driver's seat in the Bolt EV will become the front left passenger seat in the Cruise AV, GM said. It's based on the Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle. It doesn't provide any hard data on how many accidents, near misses, or injuries have been recorded during road tests. For self-driving cars, these are "unintentional but necessary" barriers, he said, and the company is pushing for a change in the laws.
The executives at General Motors have approached the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to allow 16 alterations to existing vehicle safety rules - such as having an airbag in what would normally be the driver's seat, but without a steering wheel among others. "So it's to meet the standards but meet them in a way that's different than what's exactly prescribed, and that's what the petition seeks to get approval for".
Only seven states now allow cars without drivers (though in practice there are virtually none, because the technology is still being perfected). The petition also requests for the permission to have 16 security requirements in a unique way, says Paul Hemmersbaugh, a Public Policy Director and Chief Counsel at General Motors.
