Self-Driving Cars To Hit Atlanta's Streets This September

By

Self-driving vehicles will soon make their debut in the big city. In the middle of September, Georgia Tech University will be setting up a trial run that will go through downtown Atlanta. That's right: This self-driving car will be mingling with other traffic. Why now? This trial run is part of the Safer Roads Challenge that’s taking place in two other major cities.

The autonomous vehicle’s route will begin on the Georgia Tech campus and make its way to North Avenue, one of Atlanta’s major roadways. It’s scheduled to drive a mile and a half down the street and to its destination, Ponce City Market. It’ll be a fully autonomous run, but there will be a human driver behind the wheel in case the technology malfunctions.
