Germany aiming to be the first country to put driverless cars on the streets
13 September 2020, by William Nehra

German politicians came together with vehicle industry bosses and trade union leaders to discuss the country’s beleaguered automotive industry on Tuesday. During the meeting, the participants agreed that Germany should begin to pioneer the use of self-driving cars.

No drivers needed

On Tuesday, Chancellor Angela Merkel hosted a video conference with federal ministers, representatives from the automotive industry, trade union leaders and the heads from “car states,” to discuss the digitisation of transport. At the end of the meeting, there was a general agreement that Germany should take a “leading role in autonomous driving.”

During the meeting, a target was set for self-driving cars to be used regularly in Germany by 2022. There were also discussions regarding the creation of a “mobility data room,” a data centre which would collect, process and store the data needed for autonomous vehicles.

Following the meeting, a new law is set to be drafted that will help make Germany "the first country in the world to permit driverless vehicles in regular operation as well as in the entire country.”
