Florida City Wants Driverless Cars

Jacksonville transportation officials plan to have a pilot program involving driverless vehicles within the next two years.

The Florida Times-Union ( ) reported Monday that the Jacksonville Transportation Authority is in talks with self-driving vehicle manufacturers, and a vehicle may be brought to Jacksonville soon for a demonstration.

Jacksonville Transportation Authority CEO Nathaniel Ford says staff members are familiarizing themselves with self-driving vehicle technologies to determine when it would be a good time to include self-driving vehicles in the transportation system.

They are looking at identifying partners, research and development and possible locations for the self-driving vehicle pilot program.
