Volvo to test self-driving cars on Swedish roads

Volvo has been granted permission to test self-driving cars on Swedish roads, according to a new report from DI Digital. The publication says Volvo will be able to run autonomous mules on public roads around Gothenburg, its home town, provided they stay below 60km/h. They'll also need to have a human safety driver behind the wheel, with one hand on the steering wheel at all times.
