Naver Set To Begin Testing Self-Driving Cars On Public Roads In South Korea

Testing of the self-driving vehicle tech on public roads in South Korea could begin as soon as next month, according to some news outlets in the country.

To provide some background here, Naver is a large web portal operator in South Korea that also owns the biggest mapping platform in the country, making the transition to self-driving vehicle tech a fairly sensible one. The company’s self-driving tech efforts are part of a broader focus on artificial intelligence that’s emerged at the company in recent years.
