Google made headlines and struck fear and awe in the hearts of Californians when it received a permit to test autonomous vehicles in the state. Audi autonomous cars will now be on the roads alone, too, as they have been given the green light to test their own versions of driverless cars in California.
Audi’s permit in California will allow them to test their driverless automobiles on the roadways. The brand has already been testing its wares in Europe and a couple of other states in the U.S., but California is where the Audi Electronics Research Lab is located, making the location ideal. The research lab is owned by Volkswagen, which is the parent company of Audi.
