Earlier today, Germany elevated Tesla's Autopilot technology to Level 4 autonomy, which means the vehicle has the "ability to navigate, steer, accelerate and brake without the presence of a driver."
“Germany will be the first country in the world to bring autonomous vehicles from its research laboratories onto the road,” said federal minister Andreas Scheuer, of Germany's ministry for transport and digital infrastructure.
The German government aims to bring the laws into regular operation by 2022. Here in the US, only California, Florida, Michigan and Nevada have laws that "allow the testing of autonomous vehicles with appropriate certification."
