WLNS.com reports that the Michigan Senate has unanimously approved bills that would no longer require a human researcher to be present in moving vehicles on public roadways. As scary as this sounds, technology for self-driving vehicles is being heavily developed in our state. These bills would allow researchers in Michigan to stay ahead of the game in technology development.

Though the bills allow for a humanless vehicle on public roads, it is also stated that a researcher must promptly take control when necessary. Governor Rick Snyder must first sign the bills into law. That could happen in the coming months.
