Wheego on Hand as Georgia Governor Signs Autonomous Driving Bill

On May 8, 2017, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed a bill allowing self-driving cars to operate on Georgia public roads. Georgia Senate Bill 219 requires autonomous vehicles to be registered with the state and to adhere to additional insurance requirements. Read the full text of the bill here

What Are Other States Up To?
Recent news about autonomous driving from around the country:  
Kennesaw State University Team Drives a Wheego LiFe Remotely
 
What happens when an autonomously driven car needs help – for example, it hits an ice patch or a construction zone, or is waved over by the police? Wheego is exploring the idea of a remote-controlled car, so that an autonomous car (or a passenger in it) could request help, and a remote “operator” could take over driving the car temporarily to get it off the road or through the rough patch. In a project sponsored by Wheego Technologies, a team of senior design students at Kennesaw State University in Georgia successfully adapted a Wheego LiFe with the cameras, drive-by-wire technology and communication systems to do just that. Check out the video from their final project, showing a Wheego LiFe being remotely driven around a parking lot from a computer console. Congratulations to Austin Sadler, Rory Charest, Adam Ramsey and Mikko Cain, new KSU grads!
