It may still seem like it will be years and years before self-driving cars become a common occurrence on the road, but Michigan legislators are already hoping to pass legislation to allow these automated cars on the road.

A package of bills, all pertaining to self-driving vehicles, was passed by the Michigan House last week.  The package of bills, sent to Gov. Snyder to be signed into law, includes legislation that would further testing of automated vehicles by allowing self-driving cars on public roads without a human in the car.

According to Brandt Iden, a member of the House Communications and Technology, "This is the forefront of not only technology, but this is the new auto industry."  Iden also said "This is where jobs and growth are going to come from in the auto sector."

The big question on everyone's mind is "are we ready to share the road with robots?"  Let us know what you think!
