Google is developing a vehicle that’s designed to take you where you want to go at the push of a button—no driving required.
Why does self-driving cars matter? Google has these to say:
“Imagine if everyone could get around easily and safely, regardless of their ability to drive”.
They continued; “Aging or visually impaired loved ones wouldn’t have to give up their independence. Time spent commuting could be time spent doing what you want to do. Deaths from traffic accidents—over 1.2 million worldwide every year—could be reduced dramatically, especially since 94% of accidents in the U.S. involve human error”.
Here is these vehicle works
Google said: Our self-driving cars are designed to navigate safely through city streets. They have sensors designed to detect objects as far as two football fields away in all directions, including pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles—or even fluttering plastic shopping bags and rogue birds. The software processes all the information to help the car safely navigate the road without getting tired or distracted.
What Google are up to
According to google they’ve already self-driven over 1 million miles and are currently out on the streets of Mountain View, California and Austin, Texas.
the testing fleet includes both modified Lexus SUVs and new prototype vehicles that are designed from the ground up to be fully self-driving. There are safety drivers aboard all vehicles for now. We look forward to learning how the community perceives and interacts with us, and uncovering situations that are unique to a fully self-driving vehicle.
Whether these car will be welcomed with all arms, one is sure that these will revolutionize the car industry.
