The NHTSA sets new guidelines for self-driving cars including a safeguard that they can be taken over by a human driver in the case of a malfunction. So far, Google and Audi (VLKAY.PK) are at the forefront of the new technology, although almost every major automaker (GM, F, TM HMC, FIATY.PK, NSANY.OB) has been dabbling with the concept due to the long-term potential existing that some forms of mass transit (taxis, buses, shuttles) could be replaced with self-driving models.
