Cruise was given a permit from the California Public Utilities Commission that allows the organization to transport passengers in its autonomous vehicles. The permit will help the organization runs its pilot test for autonomous vehicles. The company also released a statement about receiving the permit, "As we move closer to launch we want the opportunity to put top candidates, partners, and media into the vehicles and this pilot allows us to do that.”
The pilot program dictates that the company will make its data available to the California Public Utilities Commission. Data could be related to any potential incidents that may arise with autonomous vehicles, as well as how many miles Cruise vehicles were able to transport passengers.
