Self driving car regulations issued

(CNN) – The Department of Transportation will release guidelines for the testing and deployment of automated vehicles.

The new guidelines detail how the vehicles should perform, and include a model for state policies.

The guidelines include a 15-point safety assessment for vehicles, which is left open-ended. There aren’t benchmarks clearly drawn in the sand for the different categories, which include crashworthiness, privacy, vehicle cybersecurity, ethical considerations and how a vehicle sees the road.

Self-driving cars could also cause significant unemployment for Americans who are currently paid to drive.
