General motors is seeking United States approval to introduce an autonomous car without a steering wheel or pedal.
According to report, GM last Friday seemed that the Department of Transportation to allow it to deploy the Cruise AV that will travel the roads without human intervention.
GM motors said
“the first production-ready vehicle built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver, steering wheel, pedals or manual controls.”
A video with jazzy music showed off the new model, which is based on the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt but boasts a strikingly spacious windshield devoid of a steering wheel.
The company announced the Cruise AV ahead of the Detroit Auto Show, which kicks off this weekend. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, who is devising rules on autonomous driving, is scheduled to appear at the annual extravaganza on Sunday.
