Local authorities gave permission to bring autonomous vehicles onto public roads.

The German expert organization TÜV Süd has granted Intel’s subsidiary Mobileye a permit to test drones on German roads.

First, autonomous cars will appear on the streets of Munich, then the geography of their distribution will expand throughout the country. Moreover, self-driving cars will be tested not only in cities, but also in rural areas. Recall that the Israeli company Mobileye was acquired by Intel back in 2017.

Recently Mobileye has shown itself quite successfully in the field of unmanned technologies. The company is already actively testing drones in France, Japan, Korea and Israel. Now Germany has joined this list.

As for the testing procedure, all autonomous vehicles will be accompanied by drivers.

In any case, the admission of drones to ordinary roads can be called a kind of breakthrough. Prior to that, such machines were tested in areas specially created for these purposes. By the way, Mobileye is not going to stop at Germany: the company plans to organize a large-scale test drive of cars with autopilot throughout Europe.
