Nevada to create “Center for Autonomous Vehicles”
The state allocates resources to support the industry with new “one-stop-shop” for driverless testing.
The American auto industry is being treated to a new “Center for Autonomous Vehicles” in Nevada. It will be up-and-running within a month, as Governor Brian Sandoval announced in a CES 2016 workshop meeting with transportation officials, regulators and car manufacturers.
The center is part of the state government’s activities to become the number one state for driverless testing. According to Sandoval, the office will serve as a hub for autonomous plans. A dedicated expert would be hired as a go-to person who efficiently assists companies looking to test driverless cars in Nevada.
The future office is designed to be a “one-stop shop, where we can make things happen”, the governor said according to the Las Vegas Review Journal. The resources for the center will be dedicated through the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. Sandoval said allocating state resources for driverless cars in such a manner would be a first in the United States.
