SILICON VALLEY STARTUP TO TEST SELF-DRIVING CARS IN CALIFORNIA


04/22/16, The Hill -- A new autonomous vehicle startup in Silicon Valley has received the green light to begin testing self-driving cars in California, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

Drive.ai, based in Mountain View, is the 13th company in the state to be awarded a license to test autonomous vehicles on California roads.

The Palo Alto-based Zoox Inc. was granted a license a few weeks earlier, according to the WSJ report.

Drive.ai’s website says the company is focused on advanced artificial intelligence software, or “deep learning” that would allow the computer to teach itself how to make driving decisions, as opposed to programming every single move that a vehicle could make.

Autonomous vehicles have increasingly grabbed the attention of regulators as companies inch closer to production.
