Google Says Snow More of Self-Driving Car Snag Than NHTSA

Updated on

Google Inc. sees Detroit’s snow as a bigger barrier than Washington’s regulators for its self-driving car.

The technology giant doesn’t intend to offer a self-driving car to areas where it snows in the near term, Chris Urmson, director of Google’s self-driving car project, told reporters today in Detroit. Speaking today at the annual Automotive News World Congress conference, he also doesn’t think the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will stand in the company’s way.
