Boston Approves Self-Driving Car Test

The City of Boston has granted autonomous driving company nuTonomy and its parent company Aptiv permission to run autonomous vehicles on public roads across the city.

The self-driving cars have been in a testing phase in the Seaport area of Boston for more than a year. Aptiv, formerly Delphi Automotive, is also conducting a self-driving test with Lyft in Las Vegas.

In addition to Boston, Cambridge-based nuTonomy has been testing autonomous vehicles in Singapore. Like other autonomous driving tests, drivers will also be in the vehicles in Boston.
