Look Ma, no hands!
Under newly proposed California self-driving car rules, the state's Department of Motor Vehicles will let companies test autonomous vehicles that lack that quintessential car component, the steering wheel.
What else can they shed? Brake pedals and (human) drivers, anywhere in the car.
Once the cars have been tested either on a closed track or through computer modeling, self-driving cars will be able to tool around California roads without drivers or even the ability to be driven by a driver.
