The state of Nevada, US, has just given Audi the green light to test its self-driving cars on public roads, making the German car-maker the first company to obtain such a license in Nevada.

This development marks another step towards an envisioned future where autonomous cars are able to automatically handle mundane stop-and-go driving conditions—drivers can still take control when necessary.

To illustrate the potential of this new technology, a modified, self-driving version of the Audi TTS has already completed a 156-turn, 12.42-mile run on a circuit in just 27 minutes, at 200km/h.

Watch the video below to see the “smart” vehicle in action:
