No More Nut Holding the Wheel. No More Wheel Either?


California is considering a new rule that would allow self-driving cars to be built without a steering wheel.  And for that matter, they wouldn’t need a brake pedal or a human driver.  The proposed rule was published this week and the public will be able to comment on it until April 24th.  If approved it would take effect in 2018.  Until now autonomous vehicles in California had to have a human who could take over in the event of a problem.
