Kia Green Lit for Autonomous Car Testing in Nevada

Kia Green Lit for Autonomous Car Testing in Nevadazoom in

When I first heard of autonomous cars, I worried that it might be an excuse to take driving out of the hands of humans and give it completely to a computer. With all of the tech so far letting drivers defeat the system if they want control, I am liking the autonomous future more and more. I am looking forward to a future where my car can handle the tedious task of driving while I enjoy the scenery on a road trip, or allow me to get work done during mind-numbing traffic jams.

The latest major automaker to land approval to test its autonomous cars on the roads is Kia. The company has recently been granted the green light by Nevada to test its autonomous cars on public roads. The vehicle used will be based on the Kia Soul EV and presumably will need a driver inside the car.

Kia hopes to have fully-autonomous cars on the market by 2030, with partially autonomous cars ready by 2020.
