Nevada approves 'driverless' vehicle

BBC reports: [edited]

The first to hit the highway will be a Toyota Prius modified by search firm Google, which is leading the way in driverless car technology.

The car uses video cameras mounted on the roof, radar sensors and a laser range finder to "see" other traffic.

According to software engineer Sebastian Thrun, the car has covered 140,000 miles with no accidents, other than a bump at traffic lights from a car behind.
