China Bans Self-Driving Car Testing
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is working with police to formulate rules governing the testing of autonomous cars, warning automakers that they shouldn’t test their self-driving vehicles on highways before the regulations are released.
A moratorium on highway testing may set back efforts by companies aiming to introducing automated driving in China, as local testing allows them to take into account different traffic conditions, driving habits and signage. The field has come under increased scrutiny after the U.S. began investigating a fatal accident involving a Model S sedan driver using Tesla Motors Inc.’s Autopilot system in May.
Well China, you'd better work this out - Elon Musk has promised fully autonomous cars by 2018
