PostSubject: GM Drops the Steering Wheel and Gives Robot Driver Control   Fri Jan 12, 2018 4:13 pm

Next year, General Motors Co. will no longer need an engineer in the front seat babysitting the robot brain that controls its self-driving Chevrolet Bolt. The steering wheel and pedals will be gone, giving total control to the machine.

When GM starts testing its autonomous electric sedan in San Francisco ride-sharing fleets, itíll likely be the first production-ready car on the roads without the tools to let a human assume control. The announcement Friday is the first sign from a major carmaker that engineers have enough confidence in self-driving cars to let them truly go it alone.

ďWhatís really special about this is if you look back 20 years from now, itís the first car without a steering wheel and pedals,Ē said Kyle Vogt, chief executive officer of Cruise Automation, the San Francisco-based unit developing the software for GMís self-driving cars.

GM shares rose as much as 1.1 percent at 9:36 a.m. in New York to $44.68, the highest intraday trading level since Nov. 29.
