LANSING, Michigan would no longer require human to be needed inside a self-driving car while testing it on public roads under bills up for a vote in the Legislature.
A researcher wouldn't have to be present in a self-driving test car, but he or she would be required to "promptly" take control of its movements if necessary
The change is expected to win Senate approval Wednesday, it's said that it is likely to reach Gov. Rick Snyder's desk within months.
The legislation is designed to keep the U.S. auto industry's home state ahead of the curve on autonomous vehicles.
