Boston has welcomed another self-driving car company to test its vehicles on its city streets. NuTonomy, a company best known for its self-driving taxi service in Singapore, will start testing its self-driving electric vehicles in a small section of South Boston before moving on to busier areas of town.

"We are ready to go, basically could have been testing any time over the last couple of weeks, we were just waiting for this final approval," said Karl Iagnemma, chief executive of nuTonomy. "It’ll start simple, it’ll be driving straight down the street at a low speed and then you build up the complexity from there."
