Google has become the first company to receive a license application to test its self-driving car on public roads, the Nevada DMV said Monday.
The license plate that will be used to officially designate the autonomous vehicle will have a red background, with an infinity symbol on the left-hand side.
“I felt using the infinity symbol was the best way to represent the ‘car of the future,'” the Department of Motor Vehicles’ director Bruce Breslow said in a statement. “The unique red plate will be easily recognized by the public and law enforcement and will be used only for licensed autonomous test vehicles. When there comes a time that vehicle manufactures market autonomous vehicles to the public, that infinity symbol will appear on a green license plate.”
