Alaska Would Like Google’s Cars

Alaska is pitching Google on testing its self-driving cars in The Last Frontier.

And Google is at least taking the idea seriously enough to send a representative up to talk with state officials.

Inclement weather is one of the biggest challenges facing autonomous vehicles, and Alaska is a good place to find and test against inclement weather.

This story is of particular interest to me because I was born in Alaska and have strong family ties to the state. It would be super-cool if this came to fruition.
