Google pushes self-driving cars for Nevada's roads

Google has hired a lobbyist to push legislation that would make Nevada the first state where self-driving cars could be legally operated on public roads, the New York Times reports.

The vehicles are hybrids and have radar and camera sensors and other equipment in the trunk and a range finder on the roof, the New York Times article states.

Google said last year it had test-driven robotic hybrid cars for more than 140,000 miles on roads in California, according to the New York Times.
