Google is rolling out an updated version of its self-drive car program, and the company has decided to make the update mandatory.
It will go live today in a small number of cities across the country, including Austin, California, San Francisco, Austin, Texas, San Jose, California and Phoenix, Arizona.
Google says that it will also roll out an update for its self, and will allow passengers to ask questions to the cars’ computers.
The company says the update will be rolled out on its own fleet starting next month.
The company has been struggling to get self-driven cars on the road for years.
The cars have been plagued by safety and driver training problems, and Google says they are less reliable than human drivers.
The autonomous vehicles have been rolling out in small batches, mostly in California, and California regulators have said that they will allow some of them to be tested on public roads before they go into full operation.
The companies plan to roll out more autonomous vehicles in the coming years.
A recent survey by the Association of American Railroads found that about 20 percent of the railroads surveyed said they would let some of the cars on their tracks operate.
