GENERAL Motors has more than doubled its Californian self-driving car fleet in the last three months, the US motor giant said overnight.
During testing in the last month, all incidents or crashes were the result of third parties - humanoperated cars or bicycles - rather than GM's autonomous fleet, a spokesperson confirmed.
The number of robot-driven cars on the streets of California jumped from between 30 and 40 to 100 over the last three months.
Cruise Automation, GM's selfdriving unit, is testing self-driving cars in San Francisco to see if its software can cope with more chaotic urban areas.
