Michigan became the first state to fully legalize self-driving cars on public roads. These cars will not be required to have a steering wheel or a human driver on board. The new laws remove regulation from this new industry, possibly putting Michigan at the forefront of development. Companies could run autonomous taxi services within the state and will allow the sale of driverless cars to the public once they are tested and certified.
