Self-driving cars confront a daunting new challenge: New York City streets

Washington Post - Technology News

Mobileye received a special permit from New York state, allowing manufacturers of "autonomous vehicle technology" to test on public streets. The permit requires that drivers be present in the vehicle but allows them to keep their hands off the steering wheel yet "be prepared to take control when required to … operate the vehicle safely and lawfully." It's unclear whether others may have applied. The state hasn't responded to a request for comment.
