Florida has placed itself as one of the frontrunners in the race for widespread autonomous vehicles with a new law that allows driverless cars on the road for research purposes.

It’s a huge step forward for the advancement of self driving vehicles; though other states have made testing of these vehicles legal, this is the first time that they are allowed to be fully driver free.

The new legislation will also allow the Florida Department of Transportation to take research up a level, to look at cruise control and lane centering when the car is on a highway. This would conserve space on highways and allow people to save on fuel costs by taking advantage of draft effects.

All of this comes after Barack Obama pledged $4 billion to the development of driverless cars over the next 10 years, and Google has stepped up testing on its own driverless cars in recent months.

It looks like it may not be too long until we see fully autonomous vehicles on roads everywhere—starting with Florida!
