MOSCOW, June 20. /TASS/. Yandex has tested its first five self-driving cars on Moscow’s public roads, the company’s press service told TASS.
"So far, the first five cars have driven onto the roads of Moscow. A few more dozens of these cars are waiting to get the greenlight. The experiment is being carried out in accordance with a government decree throughout Moscow. The choice of a specific route depends on the testing tasks," Yandex noted.
In total, before the end of the year, Yandex plans to put more than 100 self-driving vehicles on Moscow’s roads and in other test areas, the company added.
In November 2018, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree on launching tests of drones on public roads in Moscow and Tatarstan. The experiment on the pilot operation of drones will last until March 1, 2022.
