By self-driving car anyone can sweep. Tests take place within the International exhibition of electronics which will last till January 11 of the Photo: Alexander Ryumin/TASS the Self-driving car of "Yandex" is tested in Las Vegas. Anyone can make a trip, and it is absolutely free, the official representative of the company in the USA Melissa McDonald reported to TASS. An opportunity to sweep by self-driving car is presented within the International exhibition of electronics which will last till January 11. How many people will be able to participate in testing, is not reported, but it is known that for safety on a passenger seat there is a technical employee. "Yandex" brought one UAV to the USA. The machine is manufactured in the USA, from the Russian company in it sensors and the system of pilotless driving with local maps. In the end of the year permission to testing of the car in Israel was got. Since March of this year three years' tests of UAVs in Moscow and Tatarstan will begin. The choice of places for testing is explained by the CEO of Vector Market Research Dmitry Chumakov: Dmitry Chumakov the CEO of Vector Market Research "The choice of the USA and Israel is caused by the fact that, on the one hand, it is the countries which already tested the pilotless equipment of different producers. The USA is a largest potential market for sale of UAVs in view of very developed road network. In general, this technology, in my opinion, is very perspective, and already the sales volume of such vehicles will grow in the near future considerably. As initially development of the pilotless equipment braked that road infrastructure in terms of signs, marking and so on was insufficient in order that UAVs could work safely, producers of pilotless devices told that as, probably, it will not turn out to wait for that remarkable moment when road infrastructure allows to define with ease when the car has to disperse, turn, stop and so on, they will make such system which will work in conditions where road infrastructure, the marking and other is practically not present". The main obstacle for introduction of UAVs on roads — regular cars, the car expert Igor Morzharetto considers: Igor Morzharetto the partner of the analytical agency "Avtostat" "In this sense I am not an optimist, I do not think that in the next five-ten years we will see these cars on roads, at least because for the present there are no special roads. To make few this car, in itself it is already almost ready, it is necessary to make for it the special smart road. We have no such roads yet. And the main thing that this smart road was separated from the main stream of the movement because the car itself clever, he knows where to go, and here to predict behavior of other participants of the movement, living people, the car cannot. And those accidents which were with UAVs today are connected with behavior of people who often behave on the road not really adequately". Years
