New York has granted Audi of America's request to test autonomous vehicles in the state, the automaker has announced.

Audi becomes the first automaker to acquire a license from the state, and plans to demonstrate its technology in the middle of June. New York first began accepting requests in May from automakers for autonomous vehicle testing.

Audi plans to demonstrate and test vehicles in New York with Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) Level 3 automation. At Level 3, a vehicle can perform automated driving at posted highway speeds when specific conditions are met. In New York, two trained engineers in the vehiclewill monitor the system and ensure safety.
