This bill directs the Motor Vehicle Commission to establish a driver's license endorsement for the operation of autonomous vehicles on the highways, roads, and streets of this State. "Autonomous vehicle" means a motor vehicle that uses artificial intelligence, sensors, global positioning system coordinates, or any other technology that enables it to drive itself without the active control and continuous monitoring of a human operator. The Chief Administrator of the Motor Vehicle Commission shall also establish regulations authorizing the operation of autonomous vehicles that shall include, but are not limited to: requirements the autonomous vehicle must meet before it may be operated on highways, roads, or streets; requirements for proof of insurance to test or operate an autonomous vehicle on highways, roads, or streets in consultation with the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance; requirements for registration; minimum safety standards for autonomous vehicles and their operation; requirements for testing autonomous vehicles; restrictions for testing autonomous vehicles in specified geographic areas; and any other requirements the chief administrator determines to be necessary. Nothing in this act shall expand on federal law or limit the authority of the chief administrator, or authority of other State department or agency, to promulgate standards and procedures on vehicle inspections that are consistent with federal law or regulation.
