Nevada issues Google first license for self-driving car
Carson City, Nev., USA

The Las Vegas Sun reports that Google has received the first license for driverless cars from the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles to test the autonomous vehicles. It is believed to be the first such license issued in the country.

The system regulates the brakes, accelerator and steering. It permits a human driver to take control by stepping on the brake or turning the wheel.

Google says it hopes to market the technology to auto manufacturers. It combines artificial intelligence software, a global positioning system and an array of sensors to navigate its way through traffic.
