Autonomous cars are coming soon, people, maybe as soon as 2015 if you live in California. And with them will be a whole set of new rules and regulations when it comes to driving. Or, ahem, not driving.
This will obviously be a gargantuan task, spanning issues related to privacy, security, safety, and, of course, liability. California's Department of Motor Vehicles held a summit last week attended by automakers and tech companies to get their input on some of the proposed regulations. But they're also opening the conversation up to the public. A draft proposal will be posted this summer and anyone will be able to weigh in on the new laws.
