Nevada has become the first state to authorize autonomous vehicles. The recently finalized regulations originally signed into law last June by Governor Brian Sandoval state that companies and individuals can test their riderless cars after licensing. An operator must be present in the self-driving car in case of an emergency and even though this is Nevada, there will be no magic button to push should someone imbibe a little too much. Cellphone usage is acceptable though. A black box must be included in the that can track the vehicle.

Google, Carnegie-Mellon and most of the main players in the automotive industry are certainly happy about the news as they have already been testing the technology. So if you see a red license plate (test vehicle) or green one (licensed) give it a wide berth.
