The state of Victoria in Australia has approved a trial of driverless cars on rural roads as part of an effort to improve dangerous driving conditions outside urban areas.
The state government gave a $2.3-million grant to the Bosch company to develop and test automated vehicle technology on high-speed rural roads later this year.
The deal marks the first permit to allow automated vehicles for on-road testing in Victoria.
The tests are designed to expose the vehicle to a range of weather and traffic conditions, with the goal of improving safety on rural roads.
