Government to cut red tape for drones, self-driving cars

TOKYO -- Prime Minister Shinzo Abe discussed plans to loosen regulation on such innovative technologies as drones and self-driving cars Thursday, aiming to encourage commercialization.

     Abe called these areas "promising fields that can balance safety and convenience" and positioned the Internet of Things as a growth area as well. Revised rules will be incorporated into the new growth strategies to be put together next summer.
