California that has recently launched license plates for robot vehicles that is a huge step in the direction of self driving vehicles. The ruling was supposed to take effect in September but following Google’s footsteps now Mercedes Benz has taken special permission for early release. To commemorate the occasion Bertha has been cruising the roads of California after traveling the roads of Sunnyvale for months now. Bertha has a distinctive roof mounted laser imaging system that ensures the process of self driving being made possible. It will be interesting to see how the automobile giant like Mercedes Benz deals with the competition that Google’s self driving car is giving at the moment. More interesting would be the occasion when we commoners get to actually experience a ride in either of the two.
