Driverless cars are being road-tested on one of the busiest autobahns in Germany.

Authorities in the country have made a section of the road between Munich and Berlin a no-go zone for regular drivers.

Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt explained: "Cars with assisted driving and later fully-automated cars will be able to drive there.

"The German car industry will also be able to be world leaders in digital cars."

The automotive industry has invested heavily in driverless vehicles, which are considered to be the future of road travel.

Audi, for instance, recently unveiled a model at the Consumer Electronics Expo in Las Vegas.
