FEATURING JAMIE COURT – The Department of Transportation this week released a long-awaited set of federal policy guidelines on driverless or self-driving cars. The guidelines came just months after a high-profile fatal accident of a Tesla car whose driver was using its autopilot feature.

A number of companies are racing to develop and test driverless cars including Google, Uber, Tesla, Nissan, and others. The industry and government claim that auto-safety and sustainability are at the heart of the push for the new technologies.
