So far, self-driving vehicles were seen mainly in the United States. From next year their experimental training will also become Canada. The media reports that the Ministry of Transport has just issued a permit that will allow manufacturers to test designed vehicles.
Autonomous cars are getting more advanced and better on the road, but for full functionality they have to be tested in every road condition.
So far, technology has been tested mainly on US roads, but tests will soon be extended to nearby Canada. The Ministry of Transport has just released an official agreement, which will enable the technology to be tested on Canadian soil as early as January 1 next year.
It is not known yet which company will want to take advantage of the new opportunity, but one can not exclude that one of the first will probably be Google, and probably followed by other companies.
