"When traveling in a robotic car, a user will control the vehicle using the ‘passenger’s table’ installed in the car’s interior. All the route’s details will be transmitted to it. The interface will show the route of the self-driving car, all vehicles around, and issue warnings about the need to fasten seatbelts and asks whether the passenger is ready to embark on his or her journey," the press service said.
Testing engineers will join the ride of the self-driving cars for control oversight.
