Udacity 23rd company to get test license for California

The online university Udacity, which has been offering an elaborate and difficult nanodegree for self-driving engineers, became the 23rd entity to receive a license to test autonomous vehicles on public roads in California.

The Udacity vehicle, that we have featured here, is operated with software jointly developed by students and faculty during the course and further projects. That very software and the driving simulator were released as Open Source projects.

Udacity joins the likes of Google-Waymo, Mercedes or GM,who are also developing such vehicles. Starting 2019 Udacity also has to submit a Disengagement Report, like the one published for the second time this year by the California DMV. This report gives an interesting glimpse into the development of autonomous vehicles.
