Jacobsen and Iden key advocates for autonomous vehicle technologyThe Michigan House of Representatives approved legislation today authorizing the operation of autonomous vehicles on Michigan public roads.House Communications and Technology Committee Chair Rep. Brad Jacobsen, R-Oxford, and Vice-Chair Rep. Brandt Iden, R-Oshtemo, heard testimony on Senate Bills 995-998 in Lansing earlier this fall in support of this measure.“Our society is rapidly evolving with new technology every day,” Rep. Jacobsen said.  “Michigan is the automotive capital of the world and right now we have the opportunity to capitalize on that reputation and play a fundamental role in life-changing, life-saving, and energy efficient means of modern transportation through self-driving cars.“The passage of this legislation will allow Michigan to remain competitive with other car-friendly states, and it is my duty as a lawmaker to ensure Michigan is outperforming the country in job opportunities to foster economic growth.”Rep.

Iden continued. “By replacing human drivers with autonomous operating technology we can greatly reduce the number of fatal accidents, which is a win-win for us all.“The operation of self-driving vehicles on state public roadways will aid in Michigan’s economic expansion, improve safety on roadways and offer additional means of transportation to elderly and disabled people.”SBs 995-998 will head back to the Senate for a concurrence vote and if passed, will head to the governor’s desk for approval.######center_img 10Nov House approves self-driving vehicle legislationlast_img read more
