The co-director of the working group of the NTI “Autonet” Alexander Gurko told RT what problems related to the introduction in Russia of technology to operate cars without drivers one has to face and how this problems are planned to be solved.
Gurko noted that the use of transport with a high degree of automation is hampered by an inadequate road coverage with systems of navigation accuracy improving.
He added that one more barrier is the lack of a legal framework that would simplify the introduction of innovative products and advanced technologies to the market. Currently, Russia is working out solutions to existing problems.
The NTI Autonet working group was established under the Presidium of the Council for the Modernization of the Russian Economy under the President of the Russian Federation. The group's goal is to develop the unmanned transport industry in the country for passenger and cargo transportation.
Earlier it became known that the California authorities made changes in the Traffic Rules of the state, which allow the operation of cars without drivers and under the remote control of the operator.
