Driverless cars coming to UK in six months!
The business secretary is looking into the laws that ban them from the roads, and going to see if he can overturn it.
He also added that the government would make a £10million fund for developing the technology in the UK. Because it's quite a priority for the cash-strapped Briton - rent, food, driverless car etc.
Speaking with his mouth, he said: "Today's announcement will see driverless cars take to our streets in less than six months, putting us at the forefront of this transformational technology and opening up new opportunities for our economy and society."
It is currently illegal for driverless cars to mooch around UK roads. There are those semi-autonomous affairs like the Volvo XC90, but they still require a human with a license, as opposed to say, a labrador.
The Department for Transport are also looking into updating the rules on road use, but aren't offering an ETA of when they'll get that finished. Hark at them.
The UK already has a few groups working on driverless car technology, with boffins at Oxford and engineering firm Mira.
Coo. Imagine being able to hail a driverless cab and programming it ahead to play Heart's 'Alone' and Atlantic Starr's 'Always' on it's in-car stereo for major late night vibes.
So yeah. The future.
