The government is set to give the go-ahead to researchers to test their self driving car on roads.
Universities and science minister David Willetts is pushing for a change in the law to allow driverless cars to be used on UK roads and says he has already successfully lobbied the government to allow researchers from Oxford University to test such a car on public roads.
The Oxford project uses a modified Nissan Leaf electric car fitted with cameras and sensors to help control the car, and expects to be able to take the car on public roads soon.
